Tacolicious Restaurant Review by Culinary Guide Keila Morris

As a SoCal girl, I’m a die hard Mexican food snob so my taco prayers were answered in the Mission District at Tacolicious.

The Place: Inspired by the top restaurants in Mexico city, Tacolicious has mastered the taco and a sinfully tasty menu of margaritas to pair them with.

The Dishes: I highly recommend starting off with the albacore tuna tostadas “contramar-style”. This light appetizer utilizes a wonderful flavor combination of fresh tuna and chipotle mayo. It was hard to stop myself from  wolfing down the shot-and-a-beer  braised chicken taco, which has the robust flavors of Jimador Blanco Tequila and a Texan beer. A pinch of habanero peppers in the braising sauce gives it the food and cocktail at Tacolicious restaurant in San Franciscospicy kick traditional Mexican cooking calls for. The next best taco on the menu is the baja-style pacific cod. The gorgeous golden yellow lightly battered cod looked taco-ridiculous! Based on how fast my tour guests finish them, I’d say they are phenomenal.

Little Known Facts: Tacolicious has four locations, each touting a unique flair. The mission location pays homage to Lalo, their lime squeezer extraordinaire, with a vintage juicer collection. You can also find the little bites of yum at the Marina, Palo Alto, and North Beach spots.
