Los Jimenez Mexican Cocina, a new Al Pastor style taco shop, is set to open in early April in the former Vinny’s South Philly Sandwich Shop at 2654 S. 6th St.
This new taco shop is being opened by Vetri kitchen staff member, Justino Jimenez.
More from Food Junkets on what to expect on the menu:
His signature spit roasted, marinated pork will be the main attraction at Los Jimenez Mexican Cocina.
“Yeah, that’s my goal, ” he says, adding that the open kitchen will put the deliquescent, reddish orange, hand turned pastor on full display, along with the other meats he’s going to use for tacos.
“I’m going to do suadero, chorizo, machitos–that’s what we call tripe in Mexico.” “I’m going to do more stuff but these things are going to be my signature–the stuff that’s going to be here all the time,” he says.
This isn’t the only new establishment opening on Oregon Ave. South Bowl just opened two weeks ago at 19 E. Oregon Ave.
Jimenez is aiming for an April 1 opening for this new restaurant. Tentative hours for the establishment are expected to be from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. or 12 a.m.
