Lummi Island, WA – 2nd Annual First Harvest Dinner Recap at The Willows Inn Restaurant – Part 3/5

By

In a short few days they each created three dishes for the special 18 course dinner starting from scratch. Most, if not all, of these chefs can take months before they put a dish on their menu, so this was really a change of pace. I didn’t get to witness it all happen, but I got to taste the final product… served by the chefs themselves.

By

Anyway, last time I was here I got really lost and ended up at Local 360. This time, I had to find it.

Tacos in The Mission: El Gallo Giro Taco Truck & La Taqueria – San Francisco, CA

By

First off, there is a lot more to Mexican food than tacos and burritos, but I had to narrow my focus. Not having a taco in The Mission would be like skipping a croissant in Paris, so I committed to tacos on this occasion. A taco sounds like a simple thing, equivalent to the American sandwich, but there are things to consider when “judging” them.

Authentic Tacos in The Mission: El Gallo Giro Taco Truck in San Francisco, CA

By

If you’re looking for authentic Mexican tacos with homestyle recipes then this is the spot. They were no-fuss tacos at extremely affordable prices and they make all the marinades in house. It could get better than this, but I was quite satisfied having this as my one experience for authentic Mexican tacos in the Mission. Mission completed… for now.

Mexican and Central American immigrants settled here in the 1940-1960’s and they introduced the neighbourhood to authentic Mexican and Latin flavours. Nowadays the district has changed and The Mission has become one of the young, hot, hip, “hipster”, and happening food scenes in San Francisco.
