One of my favorite days of the week is Taco Tuesday. And, as luck would have it, San Francisco has one of the best Taco Tuesdays around. Believe me, this is a fact. When I get off early enough, my usual go-to spot for delicious tacos in the city is Nick's Crispy Tacos, but this week since I missed my Tuesday tradition, I decided to fill my taco void, later in the week, at non other than, Tacolicious. I spend a lot of time in the Marina district, but I have only recently started exploring the many cute and quaint restaurants in the area, and Tacolicious has always been one of the places on my list. So, this Thursday, after a really awesome morning and afternoon, I decided to spend the evening with my friend, Doug, for some quality taco time. True to our gluttonous nature, we were quite the ambitious ones and split a platter of ten tacos between us. Yes, TEN tacos for $29. My half consisted of two veggie tacos (made with roasted squash, zucchini, and red peppers), one chorizo-potato, one beef short rib, and one chicken taco. I washed down all five of those suckers with a refreshing sangria roja, made with red wine and fresh fruit. Juicy and delicious, Tacolicious's tacos were nothing short of filling. What I love most about Tacolicious is its laid-back and hip vibe, which happens to be the perfect place to unwind after a long day of work. But, take head, if you decide to come to Tacolicious after work, it's best to get there a little before 6:30 to beat the crowd!
After stuffing ourselves silly with tacos, Doug and I took a walk along Chestnut Street, before finally deciding to get a cup of coffee. We sat outside on a bench with our warm coffees and decided to do a little people watching. It was then when we noticed a Tim Lincecum doppelganger across the street. "Look at that Lincecum look-a-like," Doug said with a laugh. I stared with my poor vision and kept my eyes on him as he crossed the street and headed towards us. As he got closer and closer, my jaw dropped, as I realized that was no doppelganger. Nope, it was the real deal. Yep, Timmy Lincecum casually strolled by us with a smile, and I sipped my coffee in awe, watching as swarms of San Franciscans gawked at our local celeb. What an ending to a fantastic day, I thought. Only in San Francisco could I feel this way.
