at last, tacos!

Perhaps we were a bit spoiled after living in Chicago for seven years, but finding delicious, authentic Mexican food in San Francisco has been quite the challenge. It seems backwards, doesn't it? You'd assume California - even Northern California - would trump the Midwest in terms of rocking Mexican cuisine. But Chicago has Pilsen (a neighborhood with a rich Mexican history and subsequently, great food) and, of course, Rick Bayless. From XOCO to Frontera to Topolo, Rick Bayless is the master of Mexican and we were so lucky to have him right in Chicago.

San Francisco, on the other hand, does great Chinese, Thai, and sushi. And California Cuisine, obviously. But tacos? Meh. So far our quest for awesome tacos has been disappointing.

Until now.

Last week we tried Tacolicious. Game changer. The tacos (and margaritas!) here are out of this world good. I suspect we'll be going back here again and again...

And I urge you to do the same.

{I apologize for the lack of quality photographic evidence. What can I say? I was impatient and hungry :) }

Hey Bay Area readers, know of any other great Mexican spots we should try?
