A key question is what this parser will be used for.

Is it for a hobby project or a production system?

What would be the benefits of the higher performance? Will it be perceivable for human users? Will it save money by requiring less hardware? How much money?

Is there an impact on the development effort? What is the impact on the resulting code in terms of maintainability?

What would be the cost of choosing one option now and updating to the other option later? (is it a full rewrite? would it be simpler to go from A to B, or from B to A? etc.)

What would be the code of implementing both options and letting the user (well, caller) decide which one to use?

There are many things to factor in this decision. Maybe different developers will give different weights to these considerations, and inexperienced developers will overlook some or all of them, but I believe that for most developers the answer would (and should) be "it depends on the details of the situation".
