Lately, I’ve been spending more time in the Mission, specifically around 24th Street. I’ve always found 24th Street to be far more interesting than the now gentrified Valencia St. It also has better food!
One of the best things about 24th Street is that you never know what you’re going to stumble into. Some days it’s a jazz band that’s playing on the sidewalk for a Mexican bakery’s anniversary party. Other days it’s an Aztec dance.
Beautiful colors all over 24th Street.
All the things I love.
Everyone makes room here.
Delicous ice cream too.
Many book stores too.
If you ever find yourself on 24th Street, be sure to hit up some of my faves:
- Tacos del Barrio
- La Espiga de Oro
- La Torta Gorda
- Deliciosos Tacos de Canasta Mexican (a street taco stand that’s only open in the mornings at the intersection with Folsom St)
- La Palma
- La Gallinita
- Humphry Slocombe
