My trip to San Francisco: La Taqueria

If there was one thing I wanted to try in San Francisco, it was Mexican food and I was surely not disappointed. We ended up at La Taqueria, on Mission street, a casual joint where you need to fight to get a seat (or simply go eat outside, somewhere).

It is a medium size restaurant, quite colorful, that can be very crowded, but they do not put any pressure on you when you order at the counter. It only took a matter of minutes before they called our number to get our food, showcasing the efficiency of the kitchen that was as busy as a beehive. 

We started off with chips, guacamole and pico de gallo. A very good appetizer composed of a perfectly seasoned guacamole and crispy homemade tortilla chips.

Then, we both went for their quesadilla, wanting to try one made with also homemade tortilla. Mine was composed of beef tongue (it has been a while I ate some), sour cream, guacamole and cheese.

Jodi went with the vegetarian one.

The first bite was heaven: forget the tortilla that you usually get in restaurants that are usually store bought. It tasted totally different, was a bit thicker and very slightly greasy. I truly appreciated the fact that they put a lot of ingredients in it, especially that beef tongue that was delicious. 

Eating at La Taqueria was like a revelation and I will not look at quesadillas the same way unfortunately as it is setting a standard hard to meet now. I would certainly go back there when I will visit again San Francisco, and this time, I will probably try their burrito (that does not contain rice, people!). 

Enjoy (I did)!
