El Bocado

El Bocado is a Salvadorean/Mexican joint on a sliver of Passyunk and Carpenter, right around the corner from Nachojawn HQ.


We ordered from both sides of the menu – these are the Mexican enchiladas verdes along with some rice and beans that we were told were the owner’s mom’s recipe.



Off the Salvadorean side, we got the pastelitos, which are essentially ground beef empanadas, and are also delicious, as well as a couple of pupusas. At $2.50 each, the pupusa is one of the great cheap eats in town.


They’re also BYOB and make a variety of aguas frescas for mixers. I’ll be back for nachos…..

Eating around Zihua

With this view, it’s hard to move, but we did do some good eating in town.img_4175

Breakfasts were great – fresh juices coming in at around a buck.img_4176img_4177

It was a little toasty, but Mrs. Nachojawn had a light breakfastimg_4180

I had the breakfast tacos along with a couple of breakfast margaritas.



After one breakfast it was time to carb up at the pasteleria.
