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…..

Respect for the bloody mary/High Life pony combo on the menu
Squeaky curds are fantastic.
These were ordered and consumed pretty late.
Walking through the Night Market in Philadelphia, I saw these guys and had to order the nachos.
One question – where’s the cheese?!
2.66/5 pickled jalapeños – eat these after a lot of beers
Heavy on the dairy toppings here. The Nachojawn family has had Vagabond’s nachos before.
Vagabond’s is still one of our favored casual shore dining spots with a nice sunset view that makes nacho photography easy.
Delicious spicy strips. Would eat again on a layover.
This place was awesome. Time for some more breakfast margaritas.
The ceviche in Zihua is called tiritas de pescado and it’s delicious. Fish, lime, onion and serrano peppers.
Sopes, chilaquiles two ways and shrimp tacos
With this view, it’s hard to move, but we did do some good eating in town.
Breakfasts were great – fresh juices coming in at around a buck.
It was a little toasty, but Mrs. Nachojawn had a light breakfast
I had the breakfast tacos along with a couple of breakfast margaritas.
After one breakfast it was time to carb up at the pasteleria.
