Kid Foodie Review:
Hello to all of my fellow kid foodies out there! Last Wednesday was another fun Grandpa Party Night, so we headed out for some authentic Mexican food (one of my family’s favorite foods!). I want to give a big shout out to Ryder, who was already loving his Mamacita cheese quesadilla (followed by chocolate ice cream) at the table next to me. Ryder ordered off of the kids’ menu, so I decided to try that too, and ordered a kids’ cheese quesadilla with steak. I loved it and ate every single bite. Plus the kids’ menu has a cool ocean scene to color, including a sea horse! When Ryder was done with his quesadilla he showed me the art work in this restaurant. We both agreed that this is a MUST try–kids, bring your parents here for delicious Mexican food. I am adding this to one of my must-try-places.
Mom’s Review (for what it’s worth):
It is easy to see why scoring a table at Mamacita is a bit tricky–this cool, lively place in the Marina serves up delicious, locally-sourced Mexican food and margaritas with flare! Kid foodie was greeted by a super friendly staff who made sure that she got a kids’ menu and crayons right away. On Wednesday at 6:30, Mamacita was humming with the afterwork/family dinner scene and had a nice celebratory vibe. We got a great table in the center of the action, and started things off right by ordering hungry Kid Foodie’s quesadilla with steak, a margarita for me, and a bowl of delicious guacamole for the table. Kid Foodie’s order came out right away, which made everyone super happy. The adults moved on to the Ceviche Jugoso, which was made with spectacular Hawaiian Ono. You really can’t go wrong with this menu–think authentic Mexican food meets San Francisco foodie scene–but please do not leave without trying the Carnitas Especial (a giant platter of Niman Ranch pork shoulder confit served with to-die-for homemade tortillas and some sort of seven-layer sauce of amazingness). Trust me on this.
Overall, the friendly staff, lively kid-friendly scene, delicious margaritas, and responsibly-sourced creative food make Mamacita a must try for family dinner in the Marina.
