3 Places to Celebrate Guacamole Day

While Cinco de Mayo is long since over, there’s another upcoming holiday that provides you a perfect excuse to indulge in Mexican cuisine and cocktails!

Guacamole Day on Sept. 16 celebrates all things avocado. While it may not be an official holiday, it’s a great reason to get out and about around your The Isle apartment, as the area is home to lots of authentic Mexican eateries where guacamole is a staple. Whether you sample a bit from each on a restaurant crawl or hunker down at one spot for a night of tasting and tequila, don’t let this occasion pass without honoring it!

Here are some of the best spots near your The Isle apartment for guac:


Cactus Cantina: Like most of its dishes, the guacamole at Cactus Cantina is made-to-order, so you can enjoy the freshest taste possible. Located just one block from your The Isle apartment, the eatery features Mexican faves like burritos, quesadillas and tacos, along with a wide range of Mexican-influenced pub grub, such as pulled pork with black bean salsa and the chorizo burger.


La Roca: The street-style Mexican bar and restaurant aims to bring the most traditional and genuine tastes and flavors from South of the border right to Manayunk’s Main Street. La Roca, two blocks from your The Isle apartment, features three variations of guac: traditional, roasted poblano (featuring pico de gallo, house rub, peppers and cilantro) and huitlacoche (with corn, onion, lime, cilantro and salt). The dishes come in small and large sizes, so you can grab some for yourself or to share with your table.


Adobe Café: If you’re looking for a place with a fun ambiance to celebrate Guacamole Day, Adobe Café, six blocks from your The Isle apartment, is a great option. Its outdoor patio always makes for a festive meal, happy-hour outing or late-night snack. Guac can be served with chips or as a side to one of Adobe’s many Mexican-inspired entrées.
