Las Bugambilias is located in the South Street District by Society Hill in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Owners, Michelle Zimmerman and Chef Carlos Molina, opened their doors in 2007. Chef Molina honed his culinary skills in Mexico City and Cancun. His flair for Mexican food has some French and Spanish roots as well.
The traditional recipes served at Las Bugambilias get their roots from Mexico City, Vera Cruz, Puebla and the Yucatan region. Many of these recipes were created from 1911, the beginning of the Mexican Revolution, and 1945 when the “Epoca de oro en el cine Mexicano” ended in 1945.
That is because the Mexicans were using European crops and seeds, that were brought over by the Spanish, along with their native chile and corn. Today they take hours creating their sauces, soups and desserts using only natural ingredients, no preservatives. They may have less than two hundred reviews online, but they do have a strong four-plus star rating.
Located in historical Rittenhouse Square is a colorful restaurant called Tequilas. Rittenhouse Square became one of the five open-spaced parks that were planned by William Penn in the 17th century. It is considered one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the country. The first home was built on the property by a former Congressman, James Harper, who then parted out the lots to sell for more homes.
Owners, David and Annette Suro, opened Tequilas Restaurant in 1986. David grew up in Guadalajara by the agave fields near Jalisco. He moved to Cancun where he met his wife before moving to Philadelphia.
Upon entering Tequilas, one cannot help but marvel at the colorful murals that are painted on the walls and ceilings. Clemente Orozco Farias is the artist who has done such amazing work. It depicts the true Mexican Culture of being willing to laugh at ourselves. Is it a wonder that there are only seven hundred positive posts on the internet? They do have a strong four-point-four-star rating so that says a lot about how wonderful the food must be.
