La Taquiza

La Taquiza’s fish tacos are, by far, my favorite fish tacos, to date.  Both the California (seasoned and grilled fish) and Baja (battered and fried fish) are amazing.  It’s hard to pick a favorite among the two.  Each served are on a soft corn tortilla and topped with a bit of purple cabbage, for pleasant crunch and added color.  Pico de gallo is added for more color and a nice acidity, to balance the sweet crema drizzled on top.

Rancho Grande #3

This restaurant has been on my list to try since we moved in January. A few weeks ago we finally went for lunch. We sat in the patio area, surrounded by grapevines and cacti.

Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo is one of my favorite salsas.  It’s bright in both flavor and color.  It’s great for chips, nachos, and of course as a garnish on tacos.  It would also be great as a garnish for a grilled hearty white fish.  Don’t bother with the premade found at the supermarket, which often uses flavorless tomatoes.  It’s easy to make your own and get that fresh summer taste.

Tropisueno Taco

Tropisueno Taco

A couple weeks ago we had dinner before going to see Inception.  We were in downtown San Francisco near the Metreon on Yerba Buena Lane and noticed a Mexican restaurant, Tropisueno.  Arriving a few minutes too early for the start of dinner service at 5:30, so we enjoyed a drink at the bar.  The drink menu has a list of specialty Margaritas, which I highly recommend.  Different flavored salts are used to rim the glasses to enhance each Margarita.  I ordered the Violeta, a classic Margarita with a hint of Violet liqueur on the rocks with Vanilla salt.  My husband ordered the Margarita de la Casa, which is a traditional Margarita, but rimmed with Arbol chili salt.  Both Margaritas were well balanced and the flavored salts added a nice dimension to the beverages.  The beverages definitely stand out.
