Tamalex serves both Mexican and Honduran food on the corner of 7th and Federal in South Philadelphia, and it’s good.


Check out the art on the menu. It’s also featured on the wall.


Little Miss Nachojawn was a fan of the molcajete fox(?)

El Loco Dentista and I took the kids out to Tamalex for dinner.


We started off with the steak nachos. The combination of the cotija and oaxaca cheese is, in my opinion, the way to go, unless you have a superlative cheese sauce. Also note the care that went into chip placement. This is a well thought out and well executed dish.


I washed the nachos down with these tamales de mole, another Nachojawn favorite.

It’s my pleasure, and the goal of Nachojawn, to keep my readers informed of the very best in nachos, in Philadelphia, and beyond. Get out to Tamalex, and tell them Nachojawn sent you.

Steak Nachos – not expensive. I don’t know exactly how much, but a huge cheese quesadilla was $3

4.52/5 pickled jalapeños – eat these and be thankful to be in a city with such great food.

7th and Federal
