Papito in Hayes Valley

Lunch today was at Papito in Hayes Valley of San Francisco.

I started out with a blood orange margarita:

I was drawn here today because they had duck on the menu for brunch!  I love duck and since it’s not usually on mexican food menus, I couldn’t resist coming in to eat.  I got their duck tacos!


image  The duck was braised in this sweet sauce that was perfectly balanced with the pickled veggies on top.  The amount of filling as just enough for the corn tortillas and made for some delicious bites of food!

The other place duck was features was in chilaquiles:

I was most dissappointed that as a single diner, I was not offered any chips to start.  I was pretty much ignored and served by the runners.  What was more offensive was the waitress obviously taking better care of every other table around me.

Usually, when in Hayes Valley, I grab a cup of coffee at Blue Bottle.  But today, I got a cup of cold brew from the newly minted Ritual Coffee stand:
