Pacifica has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to taquerias. We can think of seven, but let us know if we missed any: The Green Enchilada, La Mordida, Guerrero’s, El Toro Loco, El Grano de Oro, La Playa, El Gran Amigo. Sorry, Taco Bell, love the location, but the food—not so much.
If you are feeling adventurous, head on down 280 and 92 to El Sinaloense in San Mateo (Palm Street behind the Safeway on El Camino Real). The owner Mario warmly welcomes regulars and visitors, offering a menu of tasty Sinaloa specialties. This friendly, colorful neighborhood place is decorated with photos and paintings of life back in the Old Country.
