Each spring and fall, the Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce puts together Dine Latino Restaurant Week to help support the growth of these Latino-owned spots.
The dining deal is straightforward: Buy two dinner entrées from a participating restaurant and receive a free appetizer or dessert.
The deal is good for dine-in, takeout or delivery. Note that that the deal is only valid for dinner service and reservations are recommended.
A number of Philly’s Latino-owned restaurants are taking part in the five-day promotion, including seafood-forward Alma del Mar (as seen on Season 5 of Queer Eye), plant-based Bar Bombón and street food-centered El Merkury.
More restaurants are being added by the day, so be sure to check out the official website for the full list of participants.
This year, Dine Latino Restaurant Week culminates with a Chef’s Tasting with James Beard Award-winning chef Cristina Martinez of Casa Mexico.
Martinez’s famous barbacoa has been a Philly foodie staple since she sold it from a pushcart. In 2016, her restaurant South Philly Barbacoa made national headlines when Bon Appétit magazine named it one of the 10 best new restaurants in the country. In 2020, she opened her second restaurant, Casa Mexico and in 2022, Martinez won a James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic.
This tasting event — hosted at Reading Terminal Market’s La Cucina at The Market — features food inspired by the diverse Latino cultures of Philadelphia, plus and a cooking demo from Cristina Martinez. Admission includes food and drink, and seating is limited. Click the button below to buy tickets.
