Whether it’s bars, small shops, or restaurants, Hispanic Restaurant week is bringing Latinx culture and cuisine to restaurants all across Philadelphia.
This event is put together by the Philadelphia Hispanic Chapter of Commerce, and is a part of the Dine restaurant program, which seeks to help food companies struggling due to the pandemic.
Hispanic Restaurant week is a great opportunity for Philadelphians to help these restaurants, as deals and celebrations can be found at all participating locations. Not to mention that this will be the perfect week to try new and exciting dishes from Hispanic restaurants.
Over 20 restaurants are already working with the organization on putting together this week. These restaurants range all over the greater Philadelphia area.
One of these restaurants is Mixto, an upscale Latin American restaurant in Center City. The manager of Mixto, Jerston Parra, has seen the benefits of this event first hand over the years.
“After COVID this industry has been struggling, so this event brings in customers from New York, New Jersey and Philly just for restaurant week,” says Parra, who is very excited for the week to start.
“This is a big celebration for all of the Hispanic community,” he noted.
Mixto is just one of the many great options Temple students will have to choose from to find exclusive deals. They will be offering an additional 10% off of orders to college students who bring their IDs to the restaurant.
Temple students can find out more about Mixto and all of the other restaurants participating in restaurant week at the Phila Hispanic Chapter of Commerce website.
