Distrito-Modern Mexican

Last week I checked off another eatery on my long list of places to try at-Distrito in the University City area in Philadelphia, Pa. This restaurant is another great one in the Garces Restaurant Group-an Iron Chef winner!

My mom and I enjoyed lunch there because we read online about a great lunch deal-$15 for your drink, and 2 courses. We decided this would be great for us to pick 4 different things to share. For our first course we got the traditional guacamole with cojita cheese and chilango chop salad. And they give you free chips and salsa when you first get seated.

So our first courses were awesome. Now lets get to the second dishes- Mahi Mahi Tacos and Huarche de Hongos. The fish tacos were small, but delicious. The second dish (I'm not going to pretend I know how to say it properly) was kind of like a flatbread with cheese and mushrooms-awesome. It's much more complex and tastes great!!!

Adding to the food is the atmosphere-which to me just makes this place over the top. Its bright pink inside and has some really fun seating options. If you love Mexican food I highly recommend this place. Next time I will be trying some of their margaritas!!

  1. I never thought I was a fan of Mexican food, but the food here was great and the lunch deal couldn't be beat. Next time I want to eat sitting in the VW car.
