This is one of our favorites. Mexican fare at its best and what San Francisco eating is all about.
Papito Potrero is in the lively, interesting neighborhood of Potrero Hill. It’s a tiny (20 seats inside, eight out) restaurant with a creative chef and cheerful knowledgable servers. It’s not fusion food but Mexican regional heightened with a soupcon of French flavor.
The prices are reasonable and the servings are right-size — not American Gargantuan, not tiny microbites. Papito Potrero serves street-food flavors enhanced by serious chefery.
