El Cantinflas Bar
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.
“Great food! Very welcoming staff. I plan on bring friends and eating there more often,?”
“Our bartender was very sweet. She played us a song on the jukebox and makes a great pina colada.”
