FACTS: Located in Society Hill, Philadelphia
WHAT I ORDERED:
Queso Chihuahua Toluca: Toluca Chorizo in a Fondue of Queso Chihuahua, Nopales (Tender Cactus Leafs), Sauteed Onions, and Poblana Strips
Chilaquiles Verdes: Tortillas in Salsa Verde, Served with Shredded Chicken, Queso Fresco, and Crema Mexicana/Accompanied with Rice, Beans, and Avocado
This authentic Mexican restaurant, located in Society Hill, turned out to be quite the neighborhood find/gem.
We started off with a bowl of Queso Chihuahua Toluca, which is, by far, one of my all-time favorite appetizers. Between the melted cheese and chorizo alone, what’s not to like? Throw in some cactus leaves, sautéed onions, and poblana strips, and you’ve created the most amazing version ever. Yes, ever!
I was first introduced to Chilaquiles during a visit to Puerto Vallarta, and I’ve been hooked ever since. This is another one of my all-time favorite Mexican dishes, and there’s only one word to describe the Chilaquiles Verdes at Las Bugambilias: Perfeccion! Not only did this dish consist of the freshest ingredients possible, but it was also served with homemade tortilla chips. Yes, homemade tortilla chips!
I absolutely loved this restaurant and highly recommend it. In fact, I cannot wait to return.
