Mexican goodness that's straight outta Chapultepec

Papalote salsa

The Mission's definitive salsa-slinger, Papalote takes inspiration from time spent in Chapultepec Park, which, duh, is Mexico City's largest park. The menu at this place is as simple as it gets, divided into tacos, quesadillas, and burritos, with all of the standard add-ons, although here they're anything but standard (think: vegan "soyrizo" and grilled tofu). Oh, and the salsa: it's so good that it's been featured on such esteemed cooking shows cooking shows as Chopped and Throwdown! with Bobby Flay.
