CUBAN FOOD AT MEDIA NOCHE SF

"What would you like to eat?"

The most dreaded question to answer, EVER!  Am I the only person who has the toughest time choosing a restaurant?  Come on, the pressure of choosing a new and exciting location is ridiculous, especially when relatives or friends are in town.  

I currently reside in the San Francisco Bay Area and when relatives come and visit, I'm always deemed their official tour guide.  Anyone else with me?  They, of course, want the best food and touristy locations that the Bay has to offer!  San Francisco definitely has an amazing variety of restaurants, but variety is sometimes overwhelming, am I right? 

So I am here to help you find the cutest, and most Instagram worthy restaurants in San Francisco.  I will be giving you the inside scoop.  Because #sharingiscaring and I want us all to blow our relatives minds while alleviating some of that pressure of what restaurant to visit next. 

So bust out your planner, or pull up your phone and make a note to visit Media Noche SF, and I guarantee that you will not regret it! 

It's a perfect location for a date night or grabbing a quick bite with your child.  The aesthetics are literally to die for, and best yet, Mozaic and I both approve of their amazing food selection.  Not sure if it's because of my Cuban roots, but I feel a deep connection to this restaurant and the environment that they have purposely provided.  Walking into this restaurant even helps me envision my Cuban grandfather and helps me feel interconnected with my culture, through their aesthetics and food.  

Considering that San Francisco is one giant melting pot of ethnicities and backgrounds, its only fitting that I continue to share the most diverse restaurants that the bay has to offer.  This Cuban Counter is the PERFECT place to bring anyone, and everyone, and walking into this restaurant will definitely have you feeling like you've instantly teleported to Cuba.  From the beautiful colors on the wall, the aroma in the air, THE FLAVORFUL FOOD, and the amazing staff, this place is a little piece of heaven.

Located in the heart of the Mission District, and known for their signature flamingo art, pictured above, and their infamous Media Noche Sandwich, I swear my mouth is currently watering as I write this!  Their sandwich is described as a Miami party sandwich on a sweet brioche.  Girl, can I be invited to this party!?  It's filled with roasted mojo pork shoulder, smoked ham, swiss, house pickles and mustard, honestly this sandwich is AMAZING and the rest of their menu definitely does not fall short  

Below you will see their Queso & Black Bean Empanadas, as well as, their Ropa Vieja which is their slow braised brisket with peppers and onions.
