Before Tacolicious opened up shop in early 2010, options in the Marina district used to be pretty much non-existent for delicious Mexican fare served in a clean and modern setting. What started out as a mobile taco stand at the |Ferry Building Farmer’s Market| on Thursdays, has since moved up to permanent digs on Chestnut Street. A perfect setting for a casual meal, the interior feels open and airy with the large street-facing windows often opened up during clear days. The interior is a mix of brightly painted walls, contrasted by wooden surfaces and paneling, and accented by unique artwork such as an over-sized painting of a Tapatio bottle.
The menu features mostly farm-fresh, local, and sustainable ingredients, and includes six varieties of tacos that can be ordered individually, mixed and matched in quantities of four, or as a platter of ten. Varieties include their fried local rock cod, carnitas, braised beef short rib, house-made chorizo and potato, filet mignon, braised Petaluma chicken, and their vegetarian option of summer squash with corn, market peppers and chard. Other popular menu items include an albacore tuna tostada, shrimp ceviche, pork ribs, taquitos, and a chili con queso dip. Meals begin with servings of their freshly made tortilla chips and delicious house-made salsas, which go perfectly with their selection of Mexican beers, wine, freshly-squeezed margaritas, and over 50 varieties of Tequila and a few Mezcals. Non-alcoholic options include their house-made aqua frescas. For dessert, options include a mango sorbet, flan, pan con chocolate, and churros. |Tacolicious|
