Mijita Cocina Mexicana
Mijita Cocina Mexicana Review
Famed local chef Traci Des Jardins is the culinary powerhouse behind one of the city's best-known white-tablecloth restaurants, Jardinière. But to honor her Latin roots, she chose Mexican hot chocolate over martinis when she opened this casual taqueria and weekend brunch spot. The tacos here feature handmade corn tortillas and fillings like carnitas (slow-cooked pork), mahimahi, and carne asada (grilled strips of marinated meat). The superb meatball soup and Oaxacan chicken tamales are served daily, and the weekend brings breakfast favorites like chilaquiles and huevos rancheros, classic Mexican dishes with eggs, tortillas, and salsa (served all day). Kid-size burritos (beans and cheese) and quesadillas will keep your niños happy. Ingredients are purchased from suppliers whose foods are produced in a sustainable manner, making prices here a bit higher than at many Mexican eateries, but you can feel good about where those pennies go. Seating is simple—wooden tables and benches—but some outside tables offer a perfect perch for watching gulls on the bay. Plan to eat dinner early; Mijita closes at 7 on weekdays, 8 on weekends. On Fridays in the summer, you can get margaritas for $5, all day. (There is a second location with a full bar and later hours near the AT&T Park.)
