Taqueria El Metate - Rice in my tacos?

Dave MP Oct 6, 2006 09:46 PM

I have been reading about people really liking El Metate in the Mission. I have only been there once...I ordered the fish tacos. The fish was good but not great, and my tacos came with rice in them. Is that always the case? I definitely prefer my tacos without rice. Should I always make sure to order them without rice?

The guacamole was great though, and I really liked the bite I had of my friend's veggie quesadilla.

    Norm for El Metate? Yes, there is always rice in the fish tacos. I'm sure they would be happy to make you some with out, the man at the register(owner, i'm pretty sure?) is very nice. He also has a great memory, so if you order this enough times, he'll probably remember. My favorite thing there is the chicken with red sauce.
