Tacolicious – San Francisco, CA
It seems like ever since I moved from SF that new restaurants have been popping up like crazy which makes it even harder for me to decide where to eat when I go back to visit. Tacolicious in the Marina is new to me and I finally got the chance to try it out. Located on Chestnut close to Fillmore it’s such a cute spot. Not huge inside but there are great windows facing the street that slide open on a nice day. All in all it’s a great location and the decor couldn’t be more perfect.
I loved everything I tried! And if I were to go back I’d love to try the Aztec Chicken Soup, Shrimp a la Diabla, Rock Cod Taco, and the Traditional Churros with Mexican Hot Chocolate…um…yes please!
Grilled Squid Veracruz – tomato-caper sauce, olives, garbanzo beans, cilantro
Marina Girl Salad – romaine, avocado, cucumber, radishes, pumpkin seeds, cotija cheese & added grilled shrimp
Shot-and-a-Beer Braised Chicken Taco…DE-LISH!
Tacko – San Francisco, CA
While on a quick trip to SF my husband and I took some time one afternoon to walk around the Marina, our old neighborhood, and stumbled upon Tacko. I immediately noticed that the menu mentioned “Nick’s Way” which for those who are familiar with SF know is from Nick’s Crispy Tacos up on Polk Street…an old favorite of ours.
Long story short, it turns out “Nick” and his business partner split ways and this is Nick’s new place. It’s definitely a nicer environment for a food establishment. I think anything beats eating inside a nightclub during the day:) The food was excellent…so much so that we went two days in a row. On a nice day the front windows slide open and like any place in the Marina, there’s always great people watching.
I recommend the Pollo Taco Nick’s Way and my husband would most definitely tell anyone to get the California Burrito (a burrito with french fries in it). As a past San Diego resident, this burrito is hard to come by outside of SD so he will eat any one he comes upon and this one passed the test.
