Tortilla Heights, San Francisco
Not only am I a huge fan of Mexican food, but I also love taking trips to San Francisco, so when my friend decided to have her birthday party at Tortilla Heights I was there in an instant! Tortilla Heights is located in San Francisco with a menu loaded with delicious Mexican cuisine. Since there was a large group of us, we were each given a customized menu, and I couldn’t have picked the dishes better myself.
To start, a pitcher of Hacienda Sangria was brought to the table. This delicious, pink concoction included red wine, spiced rum, fresh fruit juice, clover honey and fresh fruit. The sangria went perfectly with ourappetizer of white corn tortilla chips with two separate dipping sauces. The first was guacamole made from ripe Hass avocadoes, onions, chiles, fresh lime juice and cilantro, topped with a little pico de gallo. The second dipping sauce was warm queso, made from spicy melted cheeses, tomatoes and green chiles. I probably went through a basket of chips on my own because the dipping sauces were so amazing and refills just kept coming!
The first main dish brought out to the table was the Carne Tacos, which were served on tortillas stuffed with grilled chicken or carne asada, pinto beans, pico de gallo and guacamole. Next came the Quesadilla Suiza: a flour tortilla with Monterey jack cheese and stuffed with sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo and chicken. Talk about the perfect combination!
By the end of the dinner I was stuffed and swore I couldn’t eat another bite – that is until the Churros were brought to the table! I couldn’t help myself but it definitely topped of the meal. If you’re in the San Francisco area, I would recommend making a stop at Tortilla Heights for dinner. You will leave stuffed and satisfied!
