Opening Night Photos to Celebrate Revolution Taco 2015 Walnut Street Opening
From 12-1pm and 4-6pm Revolution Taco will give away free smoked chicken tacos (one per person) as an introduction to the neighborhood and to
celebrate their first brick and mortar storefront.
Mike Sultan, and his girlfriend Angela Ficco
This is the first
brick and mortar for all three owners, who are known for their popular
food trucks Street Food Philly, Taco Mondo and Say Cheese.
When you walk into the eatery, there’s a collection of peppers from around the world on the right hand side. I can honestly say I never saw such a collection.
I asked a few of the servers which were their favorite taco’s – Sue Krawitz said it was the smoked chicken, which is exactly what you’ll be getting today.
BTW these chips and gauc are delicious. They’re going to have to enter the guacamole contest held by MANNA this year.
Approximately 10 different tacos, burritos
and empanadas at launch, Sultan said, and specials to be added once they
are underway. Trio plans to grow vegetables for use in dishes.
Condiment bar to feature house-made salsas, hot sauces and toppings –
including rotating seasonal selections.
Menu will include
tortillas wrapped around fillings like pork belly, lamb shoulder,
tongue, smoked mushrooms, Korean fried chicken, fried chick pea batter
and kimchi, in both taco and burrito form.
Empanadas will include a cornmeal gluten-free version, and torta-like
sandwiches are also planned (Sultan teased a version featuring
adobo-spiced house-cured bacon with spicy chorizo cheese sauce).
Nguyen the first week that Street Food Philly was open at a food truck
round-up at the Piazza in Northern Liberties. The three developed a
friendship and unofficial partnership in teaching each other various
facets of the business – from the food to the business side of running a
food truck. In 2014, the three decided to open a brick and mortar
eatery – and bring together their differing skills and styles for one
unified concept. They found a location in Rittenhouse Square and
announced Revolution Taco in spring of 2015. All mobile trucks will continue to operate once Revolution Taco is fully opened.
