Wandering the streets of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, my group came upon Mamita’s Mexican Grill. The three of us (Amy had to catch her flight earlier that morning), all fans of Mexican fare, decided to pop in and check it out.
I wasn’t feeling too hungry so Anne and I decided to share a plate of nachos. Mamita’s wasn’t at all stingy on the toppings and gave us the option of refried beans or black beans (we went with black) and the homemade tacos were doused in sour cream, guacamole, cheese and pico de gallo for just over seven bucks.
I do love me some homemade tacos especially when drenched in all of the above and I found the dish to be very satisfying indeed. The only downer was the pico de gallo juice softened a few of the nachos but I was hungry beyond fussy at that point and went with the flow.
Mamita’s had an extensive salsa bar with four different varieties of salsa as well as some help yourself jalapenos which were darn tasty when paired with the nachos.
Kathy - being of the gluten free variety - had a cheese quesadilla with a corn tortilla. It was small but tasty and she paired it with a side of Mexican rice with re-fried beans. She is a bit of a Mexican rice and re-fried bean professional and said in her opinion they weren’t bad at all. Speaking of re-fried beans, if you’re ever in the Twin Butte area in Alberta, eat at the General Store, that’s right, the General Store. Some of the tastiest Mexican on this side of Canada, and Kathy the re-fried bean fan approved!
