A Fabulous Lunch at El Vez in Philly



We fell in love with El Vez!
This Starr Restaurant is located at 121 S. 13th St. in Philadelphia.
They claim it's where "Mexican-American meets East L.A. in a Tijuana Taxi!"




Located on the corner of this city block, the bright mosaic entrance attracts attention.



Zooming in: a delight for mosaic fans like me.



The decor packs a punch: more mosaic, retro vibes & purple velvet.
A groovy rotating banana-seated bike is the bar's centerpiece. 
Such a funky, artsy, energetic atmosphere!






We ensconced ourselves in a swanky gold-velvet banquette,
behind which was a fabulous piece of wall art.



Lots of mini dioramas depicting the Dia De La Meurta of Mexico.



Our meals were excellent! And the service? The best!
I had to tell our waiter so! (and tipped him accordingly!)






Looking forward to gathering some friends for a return visit!
