Taqueria De Amigos



Drive down Old Stage Road, just off highway 101 along the San Mateo coast all the while marveling at the magnificent ocean views and verdant rolling hills, towards the tiny town of Pescadero. Forget about the GPS and when you arrive in town just lean out of the car window and ask pretty much anyone you see on the street, (no, not that guy) for directions to the Taqueria De Amigos. They’ll know what you mean.

Once inside the nearly anonymous gas-station-grocery-store, just get in line. If possible, have your friend snag one of the tiny tables over there by the bounteous salsa bar brimming with all those wonderful taco toppings: pickled radishes and carrots, various peppers, fresh multi-colored salsas, warm crispy chips etc. At about four bucks for a pair, the little fish tacos here are among the very best in California.
