La Llorona, a Mexican cantina from the owner of Cafe y Chocolate, is open in South Philly

“This is more of a city restaurant,” said Lorenzo, who was born in San Mateo, Puebla, grew up in Mexico City, and opened Cafe y Chocolate in 2007. Before opening, Lorenzo was a landscaper.

La Llorona — named after the weeping woman in Mexican folklore — boasts a bar that includes some hard-to-find tequilas and agave spirits, as well as beers, whiskeys, gins, vodkas, rums, and brandies. (A locally brewed, Mexican-style lager is on the way.)

Michael Klein, Philadelphia Inquirer | June, 22 2020

“I’ve seen zero evidence of any nation on Earth other than Mexico even remotely having the slightest clue what Mexican food is about or even come close to reproducing it. It is perhaps the most misunderstood country and cuisine on Earth.” – Anthony Bourdain
