Spanish Food, Cooking, and Restaurants


My San Francisco Choice: Picaro Cafe

Picaro Cafe

Only a few blocks from Mission and 16th Street BART Station, this restaurant across from the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco is my favorite place to meet up with friends and family in the city.


The restaurant is very informal with great selection of tapas. In fact, I only go here for the tapas. I find the food very similar to that found in Madrid. If I have any critism it would be that the music unfortunately on occasion can be more Mexican than Spanish.
