A couple of months ago, we got word that the team behind La Chingonita food truck was working on a brick-and-mortar in Fishtown. Well the time has finally come: Owners Rebecca Baez and Omar Martinez took to Instagram last week to announce that they’ve opened their space at 413 East Girard Street (formerly Sketch Burger). Tuesday is the grand opening. They’ve got tacos, tacos and more tacos on the board, elote (the perfect summer food), quesadillas and burritos — a simple, tight menu that made the truck so popular. Here’s hoping it works for the home base, too.
