Where to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Manayunk

Cinco de Mayo is one of the biggest party days of the year—and there are plenty of ways to get in on the fun right near your The Isle apartment. Whether you’re looking to chow down on tacos or indulge in some top-shelf tequila, the Mexican cultural celebration provides a great excuse to get out and about with friends or family and enjoy the neighborhood’s exciting nightlife and dining options. Many eateries and bars will get in on the fun of the holiday, but for a truly genuine Cinco de Mayo outing, you should scout out the most authentic Mexican hot spot.

In Manayunk, one of those is Taqueria Feliz, located just two blocks from your The Isle apartment, right on Main Street. Authenticity abounds at Taqueria Feliz—both in its design and menus. The space is modeled after the bright taquerias of Mexico, with color popping everywhere—from the multicolored tables to the traditional Mexican wall décor. That commitment to genuine quality extends to the menus, which Taqueria Feliz promises rely on the freshest ingredients.

If you want to try for yourself, Cinco de Mayo is the perfect opportunity. This year’s holiday falls on a Sunday, which means you’re in luck, as Taqueria Feliz offers weekend brunch. Get your Cinco de Mayo party started early with Taqueria Feliz’s versions of the classic brunch cocktails—the mimosa or bloody “Maria”! Dive into breakfast tacos, chorizo, huevos rancheros or many other brunch options to feel like you’re dining right in the middle of Mexico, instead of right on Main Street.

Or stop by later in the day for lunch or dinner, where you can find just as wide of a variety of traditional Mexican dishes—all with their own Taqueria Feliz spin (think crab guacamole, nachos with braised brisket or tacos stuffed with brussels sprouts)! No Cinco de Mayo meal is complete without a margarita and Taqueria Feliz will deliver on that front as well, with 10 different varieties. Tequila lovers will be in heaven, as there are more than 40 different bottles—try one or sample several in a flight.

If you haven’t yet tried Taqueria Feliz (or are eager for a return visit!), there’s no better time to go than Cinco de Mayo!
