Visit this tiny, family-owned restaurant and feast on authentic Mexican dishes, from Coctel de Camaron (shrimp cocktail smothered in a homemade tomato sauce) to simply perfect skirt steak tacos. Blue Corn also offers a variety of tacos, huaraches, tortas, and larger entrees like Alambre, a popular Mexican dish that consists of pan-seared chicken or beef topped with onions, peppers, bacon, cheese, and guacamole.
Blue Corn has a ton of excellent cocktails (a rarity in Philly where the majority of Mexican restaurants are BYOBs) but the restaurant’s selection of frozen drinks is what keeps us coming back over and over. In the summer, they make a melon pina colada with seasonal fruit, which really puts it over the top. If it’s not melon season, opt for the classic piña colada, which comes in a hollowed-out pineapple.
