Amazing Oxacan Mexican Restaurant San Francisco

If you are like me (at least if you live in California) Mexican food is plentiful and a staple diet. It has broadened from tacos and burritos to Salad bowls, Chipotle, and taco trucks. This past week, however, our daughter found this restaurant listed on the top 10 restaurants to visit in San Francisco. It was 4:30 on a Saturday afternoon when we picked her up from a Practice SAT test and headed on over a few blocks away. A great time to dine as there are empty tables and the staff are extra friendly. The restaurant, Nopalito is located at 1224 9th ave, San Francisco.  We started out with an amazing dish of fresh tortillos with a chili sauce, oaxacan cheese and cilantro, followed by a sampling of small plates.  Definitely a restaurant to go visit for a different taste!

Followed by selected dishes such as blue corn tortillo with beans, cheese, onions, and a secret sauce
