Las Cazuelas takes Philly south of the border
Las Cazuelas in Northern Liberties transports the diner from Philadelphia to Mexico. The authentic fare is inspired by Puebla, Mexico, the hometown of Las Cazuelas chef Alfredo Aquilar. The large portions make up for the restaurant’s limited menu.Call me Alejandra, because Las Cazuelas has transported me from its location on the border of Northern Liberties and Olde Kensington to Puebla, Mexico, the hometown of chef Alfredo Aguilar. Although the small Mexican restaurant is inconspicuous in appearance, its food is anything but modest. The menu does not offer a considerable variety of choices and is thus limiting for the pickier eaters. However, the available list of options is no letdown. In fact, the authenticity featured on the menu carries over to the vibrant yet traditional interior decor. Before proceeding with the meal, though, some advice: Come hungry.
