Loqui is a taco shop that started as a pop-up at Tartine but became so beloved that it broke out on its own. The Culver City spot's speciality is perfectly blistered house-made tortillas filled with mesquite-grilled meats, but to be honest, the hot-off-the-griddle tortillas taste pretty darn good on their own. Part of the multi-purpose Platform complex, Loqui features an outdoor patio and minimalistic industrial decor.
Yes, Loqui (part of Culver City’s Platform) is the umpteenth taqueria on this list, but it earns its spot with a limited but incredibly tasty menu of excellent tacos and plates. What started as a weekly popup out of the back of San Francisco’s Tartine Bakery has grown into one of the city’s hottest taco spots. You’ll find a handful of tasty taco fillings like mushroom, chicken, and pork, but the true stars are Loqui’s handmade tortillas, which are ultra-thin and cooked until perfectly crisp, and can be purchased by the bag for all your home-taco needs.
