Gracias Madre, Not your vegan by omission Mexican in San Francisco

On one of my overnights in San Jose I had the opportunity to head into San Francisco and meet up with a fellow blogger, Jenn from TGWB.  This meeting happened a few months ago and as sometimes happens, things sit in my queue.  And sit.  And sit.  Sometimes blogs just sit for awhile.  And sit.  Oh yes, you know what's next ... and sit.

Jenn just put up an excellent post about our lunch, (but it was horchatas!), on her blog, Live Green Wear Black and rather than repost the entire lunch experience, click here and read her words.  Here are the pics though!
Almost empty restaurant.  Good=no waiting.  Bad=longevity of a place serving great food.

First meeting of the Bi-Coastal Vegan Bloggers Association.  Now it's tax deductible.  

"Shine a light on me."

Empanada del dia in a mole sauce with plantain filling.  Very sweet but nice heat from the mole.

Gordita with mashed potatoes, grilled crispy on each side with cashew cream, avocado, green onions and lettuce.
More Gordita.  Actually a picture of less Gordita.

Sweet Potato Quesadilla

The inner workings of a perfect quesadilla.

I haven't had many (any) Horchatas in my life but they were the only thing on the bill that might have been on the high side.  It was definitely large and at $8 a piece probably could be shared with whoever you're having lunch with.  All in all a very reasonable lunch tab.

I just keep thinking Bullitt is going to come screaming down the street any second.

It's the kind of place you have to be looking for.  No big signs saying "Vegan" or anything else for that matter.
