“Good eats” are promised right in the name of this homey restaurant on the outskirts of the Mission, and La Cocina alum Isabel Caudillo delivers. Her menu centers on guisados, the luscious slow-cooked stews of her native Mexico City. Whether you opt for piquant meatballs in chipotle sauce or tender pork with green mole, you’ll receive plenty of warm, handmade corn tortillas to mop up every last drop of her delectable blends.
The tightly edited menu is rounded out with other Mexican classics: tacos, tortas, chilaquiles and fresh-fried tortilla chips accompanied by a hefty scoop of tangy guacamole. Chase it down with an ice-cold Mexican Coca-Cola, but remember to save room for Caudillo’s creamy, caramelized flan—it’s one of the best renditions in the city.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
