Finding good Mexican food in San Francisco is not that hard. Finding great Mexican food is the real challenge. I always look for a signature dish at a restaurant that I want to go back to again and again. My favorite dish at San Jalisco is Pollo en Mole.

San Jalisco is a family owned restaurant with great service and wonderfully prepared food.

Some of my other favorite dishes at San Jalisco include: Caldo de Pollo, a very good spicy chicken soup that helps when you have the beginnings of a cold; a Seafood Cocktail with prawns, clams, oysters, crab, octopus, avocado, pico de gallo and tomato sauce; Coctel Jason served warm or cold; Tilapia frita, and Celeste’s Pork Fiesta, a beautiful combination plate of Chile Verde, Carnitas, and Chicherrones. It’s more than enough for anyone. Then there’s one of the best Dulce Flan’s I have tasted in a long time.

San Jalisco is located in the heart of the Mission district in San Francisco and is a little known gem that is not on most people’s radar. This place has the feeling of being in a the kitchen of a good friend’s mother.

I come from the East Coast and didn’t grow up with Mexican food. It’s an acquired taste for me. I have had to work really hard to find dishes that I like. San Jalisco has plenty of them.
