Some Playa Azul in San Francisco…

It was a gorgeous Sunday and my sister who is truly a foodie in my opinion brought us to Playa Azul, located in Bernal Heights area. We didn’t know what to expect, she just kept talking about their fresh Shrimp Cocktail and how it would be nice to have one on a hot day. We got there before noon and it was already quite busy, when we were done eating our food, the place was packed.

We shared the very fresh Coctel de Camaron, Shrimp Cocktail served with Tomato Sauce, Avocado, Onion, Tomato And Cilantro! It was delicious and not fishy at all, everything about it was fresh, the shrimp and the sauce! We also ordered 2 big plates, each came with 2 sides and the choice of buttery bread or tortillas. We got the flavorful Carne Asada, grilled thin cut rib-eye steak served on a sizzling plate and the perfectly seasoned and grilled Tilapia. For the sides we ordered Beans, Clam Chowder, Rice and Fries (yes, fries), an order of the tortillas and an order of the very buttery bread.

The portions were quite big, but since everything was so damn tasty, we actually finished everything we ordered! So…on a rare sunny day in San Francisco, visit Playa Azul for their Shrimp Cocktail and more!

I’m Hungry for some Taqueria Guadalajara

Over the weekend, I was craving Mexican food…so we decided to go somewhere close to home, Taqueria Guadalajara.  My hubby had actually gotten me a quesadilla suiza here, but I’ve never been to the restaurant myself.  The quesadilla suiza here is VERY GOOD.

So I found myself at this very small and decorated restaurant. I was hungry so I ordered the Enchiladas Plate with Carne Asada. While waiting for my plate, I munched on lots of chips and salsa, they also had a thick guacamole salsa, it was definitely not watered down and it was great with the chips! I then got my big plate of enchiladas, it was not just 2, it was 3 enchiladas! And the food? Well, let’s just say I finished this entire plate by myself…yes…it was that good!  I highly recommend this place if you are in the area!

Hello Pancho Villa Taqueria

Over the weekend, we went to eat at Pancho Villa Taqueria in San Mateo. There’s actually a Pancho Villa Taqueria in San Francisco too, I’m not sure if it’s the same owner but the menus and restaurants do look very similar.  Simple, casual, busy and a great big menu!

I love Mexican food, I can always eat a burrito, tacos, quesadillas or enchiladas! I love the flavors and I really love carne asada. It was a hot day, so eating here was a great choice. And of course, with the hot weather, it gave me another reason to order the  refreshing Watermelon Agua Fresca, they always has a variety of fresh agua frescas!
