La Palma Mexicatessen


in The Mission, Dogpatch & Potrero Hill

Follow the applause: that's the sound of organic tortilla-making in progress. You've found the Mission mother lode of handmade tamales, and pupusas (tortilla pockets) with potato and chicharones (pork crackling), carnitas (slow-roasted pork), cotija (Oaxacan cheese) and La Palma’s own tangy tomatillo sauce. Get takeout or bring a small army to finish the meal at sunny sidewalk tables.
