A pozole and mojito kind of day.

Tom Gettman | Oct 6, 200208:34 PM     1

On Friday, after almost a year of looking for a pozole to match the one that used to be served at Roosevelts, I found the best version to date in SF. On Friday I stopped at the New Central on S. Van Ness and 14th for a machacado de huevos fix and was pleasantly surprised to find they served pozole every Friday. It came in a large bowl filled with hominy, meaty pork neck and hock bones and rich red broth, accompanied by 3 handmade corn tortillas, and a plate piled high with the usual shredded cabbage, onions and radishes which when added to the soup made for a hellofa $5.95 lunch. Since it was another beautiful day in the Mission, I decided to walk off my belly full of salt and cholesterol by heading up Valencia for my first and as it turned out second fabled mojito at Luna Park. Granted, I had nothing to compare them to, but they were the best I’d ever tasted and thanks to bartender Duncan’s shared recipe, I’ll try home brewing this weekend. Any other recommendations for pozole in the City?

Cheers-Tom-
