Taqueria Del Sol to Center City; Shake Shack Turns 1

CENTER CITYHigh-end Southwestern chain Taqueria Del Sol has had a very successful run in Willow Grove since opening up shop in 2012, and they just opened another outpost on Sproul Road in DelCo. Owner Chris Blythe said that the restaurants have been doing so well that a third TDS is on the way for 2014, and it'll be located somewhere in Center City. [The Insider]

RITTENHOUSEIt's hard to believe that tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of Shake Shack in Philly. To celebrate the occasion, the Sansom Street crew is selling a specialty Birthday Cake Concrete, which they developed with legendary South Philly bakery Termini Bros. It's priced at $4.25 for a half, and $6.50 for the regular. [EaterWire]

WEST PHILLYIt looks like Jeanne Chang was way ahead of the curve when she opened up Lil' Pop Shop, as artisan popsicles are the all the hotness and her shop was namedropped in the latest issue of Restaurant News. The article talks all about the amazing flavors Chang conjures up and her expansion plan for world domination. And it looks like there's no end in sight for Chang's business, since, as she puts it: "A lot of what we do is like ice cream, except on a stick, and ice cream will never go out of fashion." [NRN]
