El Camino Real Restaurant Review

: Border town-comes-to-Northern Liberties is the concept behind Owen Kamihira's (Bar Ferdinand) cowboy bar. Kamihira presents the best of Texas: ribs, brisket, chili and Tex-Mexicano --- enchiladas, burritos and guacamole. Vegetarians or those who want to keep it lighter can consider a few non-meat options such as cactus and sweet potato tacos, and a taco salad available with seitan or shrimp. In keeping with the theme, there's an extensive list of bourbon and tequila along with homemade margaritas sold in pitchers or 12-ounce glasses.
