Fodor's Expert Review El Molino Central

$ Sonoma Mexican Fodor's Choice

Fans purchase Karen Waikiki's tortillas and tamales—handmade from stone-ground heritage corn and other organic ingredients—at Bay Area stores and farmers' markets. At her roadside restaurant, which has more tables outside than in, you can pick from the full lineup, with choices including the star tamales (chicken mole and Niman Ranch pork), tacos filled with beer-battered fish or crispy beef, and enchiladas and burritos.
