Nopalito, San Francisco

August 18, 2014


We had a bad experience at Nopalito some time ago, not being seated at all or called for our table after THREE hours of waiting (2 of which were on the phone in wait list), and were pretty grumpy about it.  A complaint yielded some results so we decided to give them another shot.

The wait staff this time around were great: attentive, helpful, and genuinely nice. I don’t know if we’ll ever risk dinner with them again but a weekday lunch worked really well.  Everything was amazing, and I think we could make a meal of any variety of appetizers.

I thought I was just ordering fancy chips and dip with the Totopos con Chile but nope. SUPER fancy, very filling, very generous serving.

Had my doubts about the brown paper wrapped Carnitas for about a split second, then I smelled it. Then I tasted it. *swoon*

The taquitos de papas were fun and easy (I have a soft spot for taquitos); and I’m going to be dreaming about those empanadas.

Nopalito may not be authentic Mexican food but all that flies out the window when you’re served.

  4. OMG that looks good.

    We just found a new place here in Px: it’s called “Paquimos: Street Food of Mexico.” Two friends say it’s good, if a little pricier than expected for a hole in the wall. Online reviews are raves. Can’t wait to see if it holds a candle to this.
