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.
Also pictured are shots of Philadelphia City Hall and a local landmark known as The Union League which was established in 1862. The “League” was founded to suppress the rebellion of the American Civil War and to preserve the Union.
