Kensington’s Sor Ynez offers elevated Mexican fare and elusive mezcal service

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — In an industrial area of ​​Kensington where the neighborhood is experiencing a renaissance, the ‘1800 North American’ building is like a creators’ community – anchored in a Nextfab maker space.

You’ll also find a bike shop, architectural salvage and more.

But the foodie attraction in the building is a restaurant that serves Mexican cuisine, fresh and fresh.

At Sor Ynez, Executive Chef Alexis Tellez uses classic techniques and influences from his family in Mexico.

He was raised there but grew up here in New Hope where his mother was also a chef.

In addition to traditional Mexican dishes prepared with the chef’s farm-to-table approach, the full bar offers traditional mezcal service.

Mezcal is a spirit similar in taste and origin to tequila.

Sor Ynez’s service includes citrus slices and three salts—each with different levels of salt to complement the mezcal’s smoky flavor.

They say that this traditional presentation is a bit hard to find on the local restaurant scene and is completely authentic at this place.
