Philladilla, Philadelphia PA
Roast Pork Taco
Philly Cheesesteak Quesadilla
Philladilla is a new food cart that frequents 33rd and Arch, otherwise known as part of the Food Truck Mecca down at Drexel. To some, a Mexican-based food cart is one too many but this one adds the cute, fresh factor… oh, and the creativity.
The Roast Pork Taco, which I got one for $3, was quite tasty. I loved the Asian slaw on top but the taco could have used more flavour, which would go well with the tender pork. The cilantro pesto was a nice twist and a very refreshing one at that.
The Philly Cheesesteak Quesadilla may not seem to be worth the $6 at first. To be honest, it was small and probably will not fill you up as nicely as $6 spent on another food truck. However, I liked the flavour of the tender steak with sweet onions, and American cheese. They went so well with the flour tortilla and for some reason, was a little nostalgic for me. I also loved the sweet, homemade ketchup that came with it. Overall, the menu can be limited but Philladilla is worth a try!
