New to Rittenhouse Square, Revolution Taco is the brainchild of food truck owners Mike Sultan and Carolyn Nguyen of Street Food Philly and Taco Mondo and Alan Krawitz of Say Cheese Philadelphia. While tacos are the main focus, you also have the option of both burritos and burrito bowls – all made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, local produce (some is even grown by the owners themselves), and chef-made sauces. The burrito bowls trade the flour tortilla for lettuce. For a little something extra, look for the house-made salsas and sauces that are available as toppings and change seasonally.

Spanish for “energy, spirit and vitality,” Animo is a quick-service juice and burrito bar that offers nutritious food made with high-quality ingredients. From the handrolled burritos to the fresh-pressed juices, everything is made in-house using non-GMO, organic, 100% natural ingredients. Burritos are made with whole-wheat tortillas that are steamed instead of grilled to prevent them from drying out, give a better texture and melt the cheese. Choose from the smaller “petito” or classic burrito size, with prices ranging from $5 to $11 depending on size and filling. In addition to the standard burritos described above, you can also try a specialty burrito such as the kale and quinoa burrito. Filled with pinto beans, roasted veggies, guacamole, salsa, chopped kale and quinoa, it’s entirely vegan and one of Animo’s best sellers.

What started out as a small operation, selling tacos out of a brightly-colored truck, is now a University City favorite. Tom McCusker (a Drexel grad) became famous making and selling West coast style tacos while driving his truck throughout the city. After realizing that food trucks aren’t as popular in the winter, he opened a casual restaurant in late 2011 where nearby college students can stop in for tacos, burritos and sides like chips, guacamole, and pico de gallo. The burritos are made with flour tortillas and filled with beans, rice, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo. Keep it simple with just those ingredients for $7.75 or opt for sweet potato or grilled vegetables for $8.50 or pork, beef or chicken for $8.75. You can also ask for a combo like sweet potato and chicken, one of their most popular items on the menu. The breakfast burrito (available every morning) is another Honest Tom’s favorite.
