Dinner in Philly – El Vez

We had a nice dinner with friends this weekend in Philadelphia.  We went to a place called El Vez which is popular for Mexican dishes.

We had a delicious “BAZOOKA” LIMON guacamole as an appetizer.  It is made with goat cheese, pistachio, chile flake and roasted tomato.

We tried the pulled pork tacos with slow roasted pork, avocado salsa and smoked jalapeno vinaigrette and sea bass tacos made with sweet potato puree, grilled scallions and fried jalapeno.  Delicious!

For dessert we enjoyed the El Vez flourless chocolate cake, peanut custard with caramelized bananas, chocolate sauce, peanut butter ice cream.  Also, the tres leches cake and orange flan.
