Palacio Latino

Map & Directions 2240 Mission St.
San Francisco, CA 94110-1812
  • Takeout, Delivery


SF Weekly's Description

A Guatemalan restaurant with high pink walls and tables covered in flowery plastic, Palacio Latino is a gem hiding in plain sight. Mostly open during the day, the restaurant serves ho-hum Mexican and Salvadoran food and vibrant Guatemalan classics like enchiladas mixtas (tostadas with pork, pickled beets, and cabbage) and chicken pepian (pumpkin-seed stew). Signs on the wall list a dozen varieties of tamales, snacks, and sandwiches for takeout, but the restaurant's sopa de gallina is a sit-down meal. The cooks braise a hen long enough to grow tender, then broil and serve the meat on the side, turning the broth into a rich soup and savory baked rice.
