San Francisco's Amazing Mexican Food Scene
You know what San Francisco doesn't mess around with? Its Mexican Food. As a matter of fact, according to my unofficial estimates, it might just be the only thing in this city that is priced totally fairly and delivers an incredible output. From the food trucks, to the Mom & Pop locations (or should I say 'Madre y Padre') to the upscale & fancy: The Mexican food scene in this hilly city is legit.

On an after work walk last week with the puppy through the Marina District, I passed this adorable alleyway which I had to stop and admire for a minute just to pay respect to its cuteness:
When I heard from others (one being Jodi!) that the Mexican restaurant to the left of it was delicious, I made a point to go there with Jay to test it out. Which is just what we did last Saturday.
^BONITA in the Marina District
^Sophie's Choice for food lovers.
^Bright colors, humming music and little outdoor tables will put you right into a Mexico state of mind.
^We both went with the Mexican Street Tacos (even those carrot & jalapeƱo slices were soaked in flavors and delicious)
^BONITA'S MEXICAN STREET TACOS: 3 Corn Tortilla Tacos Served With Onions and Cilantro. I ordered one Carne Asada, one Carnitas and one Rotisserie Chicken.
^And I was super, duper pumped about that.
^Eating like this with a lone dog near you also makes you feel authentically a bit South of the Border.
^Is there anything more beautiful? 
^I burn some of my calories by smiling at the food the entire time. #DietTip
^It's always summertime at BONITA.
^The couple who eats together ... stays gains weight together.
^A beautiful, zesty, fresh, tangy work of art, I tell you.

From the speed of the food, to the friendly staff, to the quality of ingredients, to the reasonable prices, to the light, bright and happy digs: I couldn't get enough of the spot. We're down in the Marina District quite a bit and very much plan to put this in our regular rotation. 

Located in The Marina District on Chestnut Street.

Sure sounds like it was a spot you spotted that is now well worth a spot on your list of spots to stop.

I'm a firm believer that Mexican food should be its own food group because it's so good! Those tacos look absolutely amazing, and the restaurant is located in such a cute part of San Francisco! I definitely want to try and visit Bonita next time I'm in San Fran!

This place looks DELISH! I'm all about Mexican food, and love to hear that it's fairly priced especially in a city that's notorious for being overpriced. Awesome find <3

this restaurant is so adorable, and i love all the photos. you're so cute smiling at your food. and yes to the couple gaining weight together haha. i am not the biggest fan of mexican food, but i don't think i've ever really had proper almost authentic mexican food in an adorable alley, so that might be why.

That looks so damn good...! Yums! We had an invasion of Mexican restaurants ravage the shores of Singapore - pretty decent, actually, but... Not the same, or same same but different? Pics looks amazing!
