Tacos El Patron just opened in the space where Troje was at South Van Ness and 26th, which was only there for a few months (preceded by the also-short-lived Nayarit.) I understand it’s an offshoot of a taqueria in Pleasant Hill - it’s reviewed here on HO but for some reason I can’t open that post.
Anyone been yet?
I’m super excited about the birria taco. We’re going tonight, as I’m going to be reviewing it for Mission Local. It’s not like we don’t have plenty of taquerias but it’s nice to see something new, and maybe more “authentic?” They have suadero tacos, which I’ve only seen in Mexico City. A chef friend, however, reported that the suadero wasn’t grilled enough so it was kind of meh. But he raved about the birria, which comes with consomme.
I’ll post the review here once it’s done.
