Casa Mexico is a small Italian Market spot from the people behind South Philly Barbacoa. They do both lunch and dinner daily (except for Wednesdays), and the short menu changes every single day. For lunch, they do big plates of meat with rice and beans, and every meal comes with a bowl of consommé, salad, and dessert for just $13. It’s one of the best lunch deals you’ll find in the city. Dinner is a bit more expensive, with appetizers like ceviche for $13 and rotating entrees that range from chicken enchiladas to pescado veracruz - but they top out at around $18. It’s walk-in only, and cash-only, so make sure you hit an ATM on the way.
