Los Jimenez Mexican Cocina - Justino Jimenez, Former Line Cook at Vetri, Comes Home - Sixth Street and Oregon Avenue in South Philly


Recommended Posts

Hit this place up on recommendation from my fish purveyor, and had the best fish tacos of my life.

Apparently the owner was a line cook at Vetri, and is from Puebla. We were the only ones there at 1pm on a Monday, except his Pat La Frieda driver who was delivering and also eating (smart man).

It's on 6th and Oregon.

It doesn't have a website yet, but I listed its entry on restaurant.com in the Dining Guide which has discount coupons online.

In general, if you Google Los Jimenez, the Philadelphia critics are all going ga-ga over it.

Sadly, as I came to realize on Sunday driving home from New Jersey, this place is no longer worth a trip from out of town, cross town or across the street. It seems as if they have changed ownership--their menu even has a different name on it.

The food a shadow of what it was this summer, which was stunning. The world has lost an amazing taqueria.

When you say 'the menu has a different name on it,' do you mean the restaurant's name has changed?
