Tacos de papa in SF?

sfbing Feb 23, 2011 03:47 PM

I was at the Santa Rosa famer's market a couple of weeks ago and got a Tacos de Papa special from a taco truck there (3 crispy tacos stuffed with a spicy mashed potato mixture, topped with shredded lettuce and queso fresco for $5).

A greasy carb bomb, but now I'm kind of craving it and was wondering if anyone in SF (so i could sneak out of work at lunch) offers anything similar.

    They are hard to come by in the bay area I think. I ate them a lot when I lived in Southern California. I don't know about San Francisco, but Taco Grill in Fruitvale in Oakland have GREAT papas tacos.

        Haven't tried them, Nopalito has Taquitos de Papas a la Mexicana on the menu.

          not bad-but almost too healthy and tasteful!

          I am fairly sure I saw them on the menu at La Palma a few days ago.

            sadly, more cheese than potato on the inside...
