Papito Hayes 425 A Hayes St./Gough St., (415) 554-0541. L M-F, D daily, Sat-SunBr. No reservations.
Organic Mexican food is the specialty at this small establishment. You can see the activity in the small kitchen from everywhere inside, and you’ll find delicious options on the menu--including tacos (on the small side; served open-face), burritos (on the big side; grilled to finish), quesadillas, enchiladas (a mole poblano version is available), and torta sandwiches, plus soups, salads, and larger entrees. Vegetarian tacos can easily be made vegan. A good start is the chips with a housemade salsa trio. From the drink menu, I selected a refreshing watermelon agua fresca, but next time I want to try a blood-orange margarita. At brunch, chilaquiles and huevos rancheros are available. Seating includes two traditional booths in the back, a banquette along one wall, a bar with stools in the front, and three sidewalk-side tables outside.
