Vegan MOFO day 7: Gracias Madre review

When I became vegetarian then vegan one thing that was very difficult for me to give up was my Mexican food. Being raised on this cuisine sure left a big hole in my heart... one of my first foods as a baby was a rolled up tortilla dipped in beans! But thanks to a little restaurant in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco all of my tasty dreams have come true. When the husband and I moved here you better believe it was one of the first places we stopped in at and boy was I not disappointed  I even asked to go there for my birthday dinner its that good. We have been so often I have tried almost everything on the menu, I think my favorites have got to be their tacos stuffed with sauteed greens {kale} and their nopales {cactus} plate {not sure if its just a seasonal thing- we went over the weekend and it was missing on the menu}. Oh and the beans. Pure deliciousness right there. And did I mention they hand make their own corn tortillas for all to see, so good! You really can't go wrong with anything on their menu its that good. It may be a bit on the pricier side and get ready to sit with other diners especially if you are a small party, but the food is so worth it. I would highly recommend you check out Gracias Madre for a bit of authentic tasting food filled with amazing flavor. I'm about to dig in to my leftover totopos and black beans for good measure...no shame in my preggo game.
