El Cantinflas Bar's menu embodies the traditions of Puerto Rican cuisine, specifically comida criolla. Since 2004, the Northern Liberties eatery has been serving authentic dishes ranging from Mexican-inspired tacos to more traditional meals, including mofongo with fried pork, stuffed plantains with steak and cheese, and quesadillas brimming with steak and shrimp. An array of tropical drinks such as passion-fruit champagne help to wash down bites of the spice-laden, hearty fare. El Cantinflas also entertains its guests with events such as Thursday- and Sunday-night karaoke and live DJ sets on Friday and Saturday nights, which coax diners out of their seats onto the dance floor much like every bride's mother on their daughter's wedding day.

Loco Pez’s story is (sort of) a Cinderella story: once a dive bar, it’s now a pub and taqueria with a Family Guy pinball machine. House taco fillings range from chorizo and potato to seitan, and beers are either Mexican or local. For brunch, try the pancakes topped with pork al pastor.
