San Francisco Bay Eats - More Mexican and Margaritas

As my regular readers know, I love Mexican food and margaritas and it's the one thing I miss terribly living in Ireland.  When I get back to California for business, I could basically eat Mexican three meals a day without batting an eye.  Here are some of the new places that I tried on this most recent trip.

Taqueria San Bruno

This place really hit the spot!  I had just arrived in San Francisco and was looking for a place near the airport.  People were raving about Taqueria San Bruno on Yelp! so I decided to drive over and see what the fuss was about.  The place is located on an unassuming backroad in an office/warehouse district.  I sampled an outstanding tightly rolled burrito that I plied with ample salsa from the salsa bar.  All Salsas are Spicy, a sign warned.  Bring it on!  I nearly cried it was so good!

Roberto's Cantina

Roberto's in downtown Sunnyvale featured a lovely margarita with fresh lime that paired well with chips and two kinds of salsa.  Enchiladas verde (not pictured) rounded out the experience.  Nice.  I'd eat here again.

El Caminito

Once again I turned to Sunnyvale, this time on El Camino Real for another Mexican meal.  The salsa was nice and spicy but a touch thinner than I like.  I think I chose poorly on the menu.  The Chili Colorado was very tasty but more like a beef stew.  Next time I'll order the spicy tomatillo sauce.  Bonus points to El Caminito for serving it's margaritas with fresh lime in a festive glass.

Michael's Grill and Taqueria in Pacific Grove

Not technically in the San Francisco Bay Area but close enough for a Day Trip, Michael's Grill and Taqueria in Pacific Grove is a mom and pop fast food joint.  Boasting crooked handwritten signs about the authenticity of the food, Michael's served up a tasty wet burrito with tomatillo salsa.  My only nit is that they dole out the salsa themselves rather than having a salsa bar and I ran a bit short...
