A California foodie favorite has opened its doors only a few blocks from Penn's campus.

Wahoo’s Fish Taco has recently opened its first East Coast location at 31st and Chestnut streets . The eatery specializes in burritos, enchiladas and, of course, tacos, including a new salsa made from four different types of chiles. Locally sourced items range from $3 to $10 , and the restaurant is stocked with a full bar . Many offerings are available in vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options.

Wahoo will be open Sunday through Wednesday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Wahoo opened its first restaurant in 1988, when brothers Ed, Mingo and Wing Lam decided to infuse their newfound addiction to Mexican fish tacos with a mix of Brazilian and Asian flavors. Today the franchise has achieved a cult-like following in more than 65 locations.

“Local owners Jeff and Bill are eager to spread the love in the Philadelphia community with philanthropic outreach and unprecedented entertainment,” according to a press release.
