Street Taco, the Haight's new Mexican street food venture, opened for business yesterday afternoon in the former Asqew space. The new spot comes from Victor Juarez, whose other restaurants around town include Chilango, Casa Mexicana, Azteca and the now-shuttered Mi Lindo Yucatan.
Street Taco's offerings range from standard Mexican fare (tacos, burritos, nachos and quesadillas) to salads and tostada bowls, with meat options that include shrimp, grilled fish, nopales, campechano (chorizo & beef), and costilla (beef rib) in addition to the traditional grilled beef, chicken or vegetarian options. Nothing on the menu is more than $9.
Before long, they'll also be offering two or three kinds of beer on tap and a couple of wines. Meanwhile, they've got Mexican Coke, aguas frescas and sodas to wash down the Mexico City-style fare.
A quick visit yesterday afternoon saw the kitchen running full steam, and plenty of locals had already ducked in to sample the menu.
Stop by to say hello and sample the newest addition to the neighborhood, and let us know what you think.
