Mi Lindo Yucatan (24th Street) Report

  • c

Had a great meal last night at Mi Lindo Yucatan on 24th Street (bt Noe/Castro). Arrived at 7:45 and there were only three empty tables. Had never been to the Valencia St. location but read about it much on chowhound. Nice atmosphere -- bright, colorful, sunny. We started with two tostadas to share: one with chicken, black bean puree, lettuce, onions, tomato and avocado ($2.50), the other a ceviche (shrimp, cilantro, onion & tomato ($3.75). Both were terrific; the flavor of each ingredient came through. For entrees, I had the cochinita pibil (roasted pork, banana leaves with achiote - $8.25) - delicious tucked into their tasty tortillas. Friend had the poc-chuc (grilled pork w/black beans, grilled onions & salsa - $8.75) and it was also very good. I think I'd order this on my next visit. All this plus two Pacificos for just $30 before tip. Can't wait to go back.

P.S. The table next to us ordered what looked like the appetizer sampler (tamales, panuchos, calbutes, flautas, chilindrinas, empanadas and polcanes - $12.75) and they had to take their entrees to go.

  1. Does anyone know which restaurant, if any, they replaced?

        And before that, wasn't it Alcatraces? And weren't they going to reopen elsewhere?

        1. re: Chowderhead

          yes and yes, but I haven't yet heard any news of Gator's new restaurant.

            Yes, somewhere in, or near the Marina district....but haven't heard anything since. Anybody?

            That's too bad. Mi Lindo Yucatan's original location is plenty close enough for me, and I've been wanting to try Mexico City for a while based on the positive recent reports on this board. If only they could have taken away one of the bland chain restaurants in the area instead.

        2. Do you remember if this location, like the other on 15th st, only has the Amazing Posole on the weekends?
