Why locals recommend it
You could literally put Papalote salsa on anything and it would taste amazing! And you can, because they sell it by the boatload out of their two taquerías, plus at local supermarkets. It’s deliciously creamy with hints of roasted peppers and chiles. It’s so addictive that some call it crack sauce! I love Papalote’s owner, Miguel. Not only does he care about the food, he also cares about the community. He’s always hosting fundraisers and pop-up events for up-and-coming food entrepreneurs. He also happens to be one of the dopest DJs in the Bay Area.

5 blocks. Quieter and more comfortable than a taqueria. Entrees $10 - $15.

Their salsa is to die for! Consider picking up a bottle of their salsa from Whole Foods in case you don't have the time to make it to the taqueria.

It may not be the most authentic or affordable Mexican food in the neighborhood, but Papalote serves up some delicious vegan food, including a soyrizo burrito and a tofu mole.
