A small location on Folsom Street, across from the Precita Park bus station, is about to become a Los Yaquis. Their first location, on South Van Ness, has Jaliscan specialties, botanas, aguachile, tortas.
I’ll update this post when I get a sense of the opening date, menu, and hours – – it’s a sleepier neighborhood, so I’m guessing they’re not going to be open till 1 AM on weekends like their other location.
I’ve had two meals here and everything has been great. The pricier menu and plating distinguishes it from the bulk of Mexican restaurants along 24th or in La Lengua, and for a comparably priced menu, the options are much more interesting to me than those at nearby Hillside Supperclub. There isn’t a kids menu, but if you ask, they’ll make your kid a quesadilla with a side of rice and (really good) beans.
Tortillas (and gorditas) are made to order from La Palma’s regular or blue corn masa, and chips and tostadas are also from La Palma.
I only took a small bite, and unadorned by onion or cilantro, and it didn’t leave much of an impression. Will report more next time if that’s the guisado of the day—- it rotates and there’s always a vegetarian option too.
