Rated: ♣

Mijita is terribly expensive for street-style Mexican food. K pointed at my $9 2-taco order and said, “I get those for $1.50 each at Taco’s Peralta in San Mateo.” Knowing that made it difficult to enjoy my meal.

The scene:

Mijita is situated in the back of the Ferry Building and gets quite crowded during lunch time. Wait staff is friendly, especially when I found a hair in my fish taco once and they replaced it and gave me a flan for free.

The food:

Pretty bad. I don’t even understand why this place is crowded. You can walk over to one of the taco trucks near by and get better Mexican food for half the price.

Fish tacos – I had this on a seperate occasion, so I don’t have a photo. I was a little turned off by it after I found the hair. Once you’ve had Nick’s, no other fish taco comes close.

Carnita’s tacos – Since I’m a picky eater, I ordered 2 tacos minus the salsa. When I got my order, I was surprised to find only meat and a tortilla wrapped in foil with no cabbage. It looked pretty unappetizing, so I asked for hot sauce. With the sauce, the taste wasn’t too bad. Meat was pretty dry and the tortillas kept cracking. Totally not worth my $9.
