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.

Cape Cod… you are beautiful!

Being a West Coaster my whole life I have heard of Cape Cod and seen pictures or videos but I couldn’t understand how beautiful it was until I was actually there.

I enjoyed the clam chowder and a lobster taco. I didn’t get any pictures because I immediately dug in!  Not too hungry… sure…IMG_3792 IMG_3793 Lots of cool old buildings in Woods Hole. Also a free aquarium and other free/donation only scientifical places.IMG_3794 IMG_3795 For perspective, little Kate – big lighthouse.IMG_3796 IMG_3799 Future job: Lighthouse keeper. Whatta view!IMG_3800 IMG_3801 IMG_3802 At the Cape Cod Brew Fest Katie got an alcohol infused ice cream! She loved it.  This is the only photo I took at Beer Fest? Guess I was too busy toastin and enjoying fine brews!IMG_3805

Loved Cape Cod! I can not wait to go back and stay a little longer.

Finally went to one of my favorite breakfast spots at dinner time and I was not disappointed. The Elmwood cafe is on point at any time of day. I got the BLT and tomato/garbanzo bean soup.

Do you remember Thrifty’s ice cream??!! I remember getting triple scoops when I was a kid for less than a dollar. It is a little more expensive now but still oh so delicious.IMG_3188 I went for cookie dough and cookies and cream!IMG_3194Temescal Farmers Market on Sundays is a bounty of beautiful fruits and vegetables.
