Nick Farina, the owner of Manayunk’s Union Taco, has opened a second location of his Mexican eatery in his hometown of Flourtown on Bethlehem Pike, writes Alex Tewfik for Philadelphia Eater.
Farina has had a somewhat turbulent track record in Philadelphia in recent years. His restaurant and tequila bar, Verdad, in Bryn Mawr closed last year after six years, while his Girard Avenue Union Taco became a short-lived, pork-only restaurant called PIG.
Undeterred, Farina’s Manayunk Union Taco operation is turning into a success so he decided to expand into Flourtown.
The menu at the new location is nearly the same as in Manayunk with tacos, tortas, burritos, salads, and sides, plus Mexican-inspired milkshakes, such as cinnamon-vanilla churro and chocolate-jalapeño.
The restaurant has a 20-seat dining room, and offers take-out with options such as the $45 taco kit containing 20 tortillas, proteins of your choice, and toppings that will satisfy even the most demanding of palates.
The restaurant also has a BYOB policy, and provides complimentary freshly-squeezed margarita mixers for guests who bring their own tequila.
