PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME to share your opinions about this list. With that in mind:
A co-worker came in from lunch today with Chipotle, and when I mocked him for it, he said (and this isn’t the first time I’ve heard this, if you can believe it) that there isn’t anywhere else to get Mexican food downtown. This is COMPLETELY FALSE. We live in a city where there are literally at least 8 taquerias on every block. I think it’s a zoning rule. So here you go, as a public service, a list of just a handful of the many, many non-Chipotle taquerias downtown:
- Tropisueno – 75 Yerba Buena Ln. (across from the Jewish Museum)
- Tlaloc - Commercial at Sansome (this is my personal favorite)
- Taqueria Castillo Mason – 10 Mason St. (at Market)
- Cantina Verde – 398 Market St. (at Front St.)
- Taqueria Cancun – 1003 Market (at 6th/Golden Gate)
- Taqueria Estrella – 380 Bush (at Kearny)
- El Tesoro – 599 O’Farrell (at Leavenworth)
- Caramba – 78 2nd St. (at Mission)
- El Faro – 346 Kearny (at Pine)
- 201 Taqueria – 201 Mission (at Main)
- Uno Dos Tacos – 2nd and Stevenson (this is an Americanized place but whatever, it’s not Chipotle)
- Taqueria Mana – 439 Stockton at Bush
Let me reiterate: PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME to share your opinions about this list. PLEASE DO FEEL FREE to share this list with co-workers who come back to the office with Chipotle.

I love that this sign advises that they are “ripening like banana dates.” It’s like the John Hodgman bit where he reads a recipe for owl from an old cookbook that advises you to fricasee it “as you would a blackbird.” Who knows, maybe somebody knows what *both* barhee and banana dates are, but I am not that person.
