Restaurant Details

For its popularity, Papalote is kind of a one-trick pony. Its healthy, if somewhat bland, takes on taqueria standards include a grilled zucchini and eggplant burrito and pechuga al achiote, as well as the standard chicken and steak, cooked to order. They're really all vehicles for Papalote's magic ingredient: that roasted-tomato salsa. Smoky, tangy, and deep, it electrifies everything it touches, and you'll see most diners spooning more salsa into the burrito with every bite. You could eat it by the jar — and now can; they keep the cooler stocked with salsa for purchase.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
