Taqueria Las Gemelas is a passion project from Destination Unknown Restaurants, the DC based company behind the beloved Oaxacan hotspot, Espita, and its popular Philly inspired ghost kitchen, Ghostburger. Las Gemelas (“the twin girls” in Spanish) is a takeaway concept located within “La Cosecha” in the heart of the Union Market District.
Taqueria Las Gemelas is a fast fancy temple of masa complete with tacos, quesadillas, and tlayudas built upon fresh heirloom corn tortillas made by Yesenia Neri Diaz and her team. The Taqueria is named after Yesenia’s twin daughters. We hope you stop by to sip a casual margarita (or two) on our sunny sidewalk café. If you can’t stay, be sure to grab some of our pantry staples, like moles, salsas, or tortillas to cook with at home.
