2128 Mission St
San Francisco, CA 94110
This Mexican spot in The Mission masters everything from seafood to desserts. But what you really need to try is the lengua taco -- yes, tongue. The tongue is cubed and fat-crisped on the griddle, lending each rich, deeply flavored bite a delightful texture contrast. The tortillas have a delicate corn flavor and are given similar TLC on the flat top, resulting in a light, golden toasting, and an almost buttery flavor.
