Hamburguesas in Margharitaville (and mussels with housemade chorizo) -- this bustling little spot brings adventurous Mexican to North Beach
The tacos are sized the way tacos should be sized: they're more than bites or nibbles, but they don't become unwieldy behemoths that spill half their contents like wet paper sacks when you pick them up. Each plate holds two tortillas, made from proper masa (not wheat flour), about three inches in diameter, and laid flat. You get to fold them yourself. Of the available fillings, I would say the carnitas ($8) — with onions, cilantro, and arbol salsa — is exceptional, with ropes of juicy meat just slightly crisped at the edges. We were also offered an unlisted vegetarian option ($6) of rice, pinto beans, cheese, and a smear of guacamole. It was commendable, though as a partier it wasn't quite up to the standard of the carnitas. But a little diffidence isn't going to drag down a party like the one at Don Pisto's.
