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.
