Casual, crowded store/Tequesta. Outside seating was nice. The food, not so much. Chips were totally stale. Salsa so-so. Food was lukewarm and not tasty. Out of 4 people, none of us liked our food.

This place is a must visit in the Mission -- especially if you want to make / take some stuff home. You can buy cooked items in bulk or just one offs. The tortillas are to die for and made for a great taco!

I enjoyed several tacos for lunch at La Palma. Service was fast. We ate at outdoor tables but they were wrapped well enough to take away. Pop into the kitchen, make an order and wait for your taco. Easy!

The sandal shaped pupusa with green cactus and fresh corn looks and tastes great. The filling beans and cheese or zucchini and cheese are good options for vegetarians

La Palma is quite simply the best Mexican food I've had in the Bay Area. It serves as both an eatery and a Mexican specialty shop. This means the tortillas and other ingredients are prepared fresh, and if you're eating there you have an amazing...More

What an interesting place! Part grocery and part deli counter. There's no place to sit, you order and wait in a crowd for your order to be filled, in record time given how busy the place it. Very authentic Mexican food, very delicious, at a...More

Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the
foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural
attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous
street murals and a high density of bars and cafes
make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people.
While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the
