I have eaten some of the best tacos...

at a taqueria called el Zorro just across the corner from City Lights Books. Super fresh chorizo, good tortillas, excellent variations on the usual salsas (there is one that is smoky and vinegary almost like NC good) and as many grilled serranos or habaneros as your little gringo stomach can take! Aside from that, a not too sweet horchata. Four huge tacos, two horchatas and about 15 serranos for less than $15 bucks! And the Argentine Classico on TV. I couldn't have been closer to heaven if I was sitting in the lord's lap!

  1. Another nice thing about El Zorro is that it's open until 2 or 3 am.

    Really enjoying your foodblog. While you're here you owe it to
    yourself to hop on BART about lunchtime and head over to Fruitvale
    and walk International hungry for taco.

    1. Hey, thanks for the tip (and the compliments). I just may have to head in that direction although I am running out of time here in the area and I STILL have to eat dim sum. Wait what am I talking about? Tacos take the cake. I'll check it out!

        Here's an extensive exploration from a couple of years back:

        If you're at a loss, the taqueria at Otaez (not the restaurant, but the
        taqueria attached to the restaurant) is a good bet. On International
        at the corner of, I'm pretty sure, 39th.

          Nice, Mr. the Clone. I hope to make it over there. I'll let you know how it goes.
