name the best tacos in the mission

Coming to town this weekend, trying to make someone fall in love with the city, primarily by stomach. I'm thinking tacos. We looooved the ones at Loteria grill at the Farmer's Market in L.A. WHere can I find equal or better in the city?

  1. Try the taco truck that's always parked on Harrison near 18th - I think it's an El Tonyanese. After I was away from SF over the holidays, I didn't feel home again until I ate two of their Al Pastor tacos with hot salsa...amazing.

    1. If I was trying to get someone from LA to fall in love with SF, I sure as hell wouldn't try to do it via SF Mexican food! It's one of our most notorious failings.

      1. ah no, he's from Portland, and on a trip to LA, i showed him the magic of loteria grill. And it's not only mexican food we're going with. I have a dinner at Chez Panisse and a trip to the Ferry Market planned.

        1. Not authentic, but not fusiony in anyway, La Taqueria for awesome asada and lengua tacos. The board is divided on this one, but the lines out the door attest to it's taste.

          1. That is a no-brainer for me. It is La Taquaria in Mission at 25th. You will pay a bit more, but worth every penny. Just be sure to get them with guac and use plenty of that awsome verde sause in the squeeze bottles at your table!
