The tortilla's thinness makes it ideal for folding, sliding under closed doors, and illustrating theories that the earth is flat and made of corn. Voyage to the edge of deliciousness with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Mexican fare at 12th Street Cantina & Catering inside Reading Terminal Market.
Amidst the bustle of Reading Terminal Market, 12th Street Cantina & Catering's tortilla titans craft a menu of authentic Mexican fare infused with fresh ingredients. Within the tacos' ($3.95–$5.95) crisp exoskeletons, shredded lettuce, fresh tomato salsa, and grated cheese anxiously await a choice of meaty stuffing such as roasted pork adobo, baja fish, grilled marinated steak, or Arnold Schwarzenegger's head shot from 1975. Nachos ($5.95–$7.95) form mini mountains of guacamole, sour cream, and seasoned beef, as salads ($6.95–$7.95) flaunt fork-fillers of taco meat, grilled vegetables, and corn salsa. Burritos ($5.95–$7.50) blanket chicken mole or beans and guacamole in melted cheese and fresh tomato, and the quesadilla ($3.95–$6.95) folds vegetables, cheese, or chicken into a warm flour tortilla, much like a hide-a-bed folds loud snorers into the couch.
