West of Pecos : Tex-Mex gem in The Mission

With so many places to eat in San Francisco, I felt that the fact I had been to West of Pecos twice in the last month was reason enough to do a little post up here of it for others to become aware of ( if you weren’t already ) and enjoy!


First time we went was on a Friday night where we sat at the bar and ordered food. Quick friendly service and fast.bar at west of pecos

We ordered the vegetarian puffy tacos and the artichoke – both amazing!fried artichoke and veg puffy taco

The cocktail options are plentiful … I love a nice mezcal drink but their marg/sangria slushy is a must try… they run out often so ask about it.


The food is fresh and feels light and healthy while still being authenticly tex-mex… does that even make sense?

Bottom line its DELISH. and bonus if you go on Tuesday they have yummy tacos for 2.50, talk about a deal!


The shishito peppers were a great app for the table to share!

Side Note : This is a great spot for dinner if you are going to a show at the Chapel.

I plan to go back many times and often for their amazing combo of cocktails and great food.

Still feels like summer…

The Fall here in California has been warm so far. SO much so that it does not feel at all like Fall. Enjoying these last bits of summer in October while they last…

Wishing I were out by a fire right now, making some s’mores and looking at some stars!IMG_4007 Sunset in my hometown, Pismo Beach, Ca. I love going back home and experiencing these moments. My mom and I love the happy hour at SteamersIMG_4015 Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival is an amazing free event in Golden Gate Park. Its one of those events that is so amazingly San Francisco. IMG_3958 IMG_3959 Not the greatest picture but sunsets in my office have been outta this world!

They have homemade noodles… enough said. Cash only but oh so worth it.
