Taco Tuesday

In honor of today being Tuesday and for all the Tuesday's to come, I wanted to celebrate by sharing my top 10 favorite taco joints in the California Bay Area.  I've got an eclectic taste when it comes to tacos, from hole-in-the-wall joints to tacos pretending to be quesadillas and even korean tacos, there is equal love for a good taco round these parts. I'm getting hungry just speaking about tacos, you may want to stop reading now, as I promise you'll walk away with a major taco craving if you keep reading. And now, in no particular order, I give you my all time favorite Bay Area tacos.
Top 10 Favorite Taco Tuesday Eats in the Bay Area

1. Taqueria Sinaloa - 2138 International Blvd, Oakland
Cheap and no doubt the most authentic taco truck in the entire bay. The vegetarian tacos are out of this world delicious, but be prepared, they are spicy! 

2. Papalote Mexican Grill - Multiple locations in San Francisco
I love their seafood options. Order your taco with the chips and salsa - you won't be disappointed.

3. El Farolito - 2779 Mission St., San Francisco
Tacos, enough said.

4. Tacolicious - Multiple locations in San Francisco
The tacos carnitas are some of the best in the city.

5. Cholita Linda - Moving locations - check their website for details
Great street vendor!

6. La Taqueria - 2889 Mission St., San Francisco
A San Francisco staple. Michael Mina told Sunset Magazine the Carne Asada tacos are his favorite tacos, I couldn't agree more.  

7. Namu Gaji - Ferry Building, 1 Market St., San Francisco - check website for details
Korean tacos - yes please!

8. Nick's Crispy Tacos - 1500 Broadway St., San Francisco
Probably the best place to celebrate Taco Tuesday in SF and have to love their gatherings for sporting events like Giants games or the Super Bowl. I love that all of their tacos come with guacamole, no extra cost!

9. Don Pisto's - 510 Union St., San Francisco
Great for group occasions! Their al pastor taco is juicy and slightly sweet, with a perfect pineapple and pork balance.

10. Gordo Taqueria - Multiple locations in the East Bay
Fried and cheesy, what more could you want? I recommend their corn quesadillas which essentially is a quesadilla taco lovechild.  Their carnitas is yummy but plain old rice and bean often hits the spot too.

And while I'm on the topic of Mexican food, I thought I'd throw out another two favorites, Cactus Taqueria in Oakland. Their tamales are delicious and it's a nice place to hang out. And my all time favorite  Juan's Place, which is an institution in Berkeley. It's simple authentic Mexican food without the frills, ask for the flour tortilla chips and order a margarita, you won't regret it.

Do you have favorite taco joints? Would welcome any suggestions!
