Description

SF Weekly's Description

Gonzalo Guzman and Jose Ramos, the two co-chefs of Nopalito, are among San Francisco's best cooks. Their dishes plumb areas of Mexican regional cuisine many Americans only know from reading Diana Kennedy books; but they're not slavish to traditions, incorporating California produce and sustainable meats and billowing flares of creativity. The masa-based antojitos - quesadillas at this Haight restaurant are made with chile-red masa and stuffed with braised chicharrones, panuchos topped with achiote-braised chicken - are uniformly good. The carnitas are unusually succulent, and the aguas frescas are tart and brightly flavored. Rare tequilas and mezcals may be ordered by the shot, with sangrita or salt on the side.

  • Bravo on 12/02/10

    Absolutely wonderful regional Mexican fare that is also local and sustainable. -Monica Pope, Top Chef

  • Eater on 12/01/10

    SF is short on dine-in Mexican restaurants where you get something that fits the city ethos, complimented by a well-done margarita. Since nailing the latter, Nopalito fits the bill. [Eater 38 Member]

    The carnitas are a must...they're #53 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.

    SF is short on dine-in Mexican restaurants where you get something that fits the city ethos, complimented by a well-done, all-natural margarita. Nopalito fits the bill. [Eater 38 Member]

    7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the carnitas are delicious. Yum!
