Am heading to SF. Need best Mexican Shrimp Cocktail recs. You know, big shrimp in a goblet with cilantro, onion, avocado, tomato/lime juice.

    I had a good Cocktail at Taqueria San Jose on International in Oakland. It has been a while. Any updates?

      I can't recommend any in SF, but my favorite is at Portumex on 23rd St. in Richmond. It's in a clear broth - shrimp I believe. I like the pulpo & camarrones combinacion.

        Your best bet in SF proper may be El Delfin. They're good with seafood.

          The only good mexican shrimp cocktail I've had in SF was at Primavera, the stand at the back of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturday. Problem is that you never know when they're going to have it, and they only rarely put it on the menu. But it was good - really good. Compared well to the shrimp cocktails I've had in sleepy beach towns in Michoacan.

            Taqueria Cancun's is good but you need to add lots of lime and Tapatio since its a tad sweet and mild.
