Pura Vida is simple and delicious without a ton of fancy ingredients. It's just high quality, delicious food. And cheap! Very easy on vegetarians.

So good I was shocked not to see it in the listings, so I added it. By far the best deal in Latin cuisine in Philly. Excellent food, and their priciest dish (when I was last there) is all of $13- Talapia w/fresh diced mango, beans, rice and fresh veggies. I heard that they were working on getting a liquor license, but they were a BYO when I was there. Make reservations, because there aren't that many tables inside. In warmer months, there is outdoor seating, if you don't mind dining on the sidewalk on 6th st. They also serve lunch, and are a great place for takeout burrito goodness.
