Newbie Dinner: Tropisueño Mexican Kitchen (San Franciso)

This event is open to NEW MEMBERS ONLY. When you're new to a meetup group, it can sometimes be intimidating to attend an event by yourself. These special monthly dinners are intended to welcome you to the Bay Area Gastronomers, introduce you to fellow foodies, and help you feel comfortable at our dinners.

Who's a newbie, you ask? Anyone who's recently joined BAGs in the last 2 months, or anyone who's never attended one of our events. You can fit either category. If you're not sure, drop me a line. Since you're new to our group, please read through the FAQ and Ground Rules beforehand.

 

I've been trying to snag a reservation at the ever-popular Tropisueño for the past three months. What's great about this place is that it's a bustling taqueria by day for the work crowd, and a full-service restaurant by night. They've been mentioned in several media outlets and the place is always packed. So what's the buzz all about, you ask?

Check them out on YelpFacebook, and Twitter. They were also featured on the local Bay Area TV program, Check Please!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Tropisueño is designed to offer you a quick and easy taqueria and a relaxing Mexican restaurant all under one roof. At lunch, you will find a straight-up taqueria. A Taquista will make a burrito, taco or special plate. Enjoy it here in a room reminiscent of the Jaliscan coastline or grab it to go. Magic Happens...

Return at night and you will see some surprising changes. The taqueria has disappeared and a beautiful full service restaurant has emerged. A hostess will greet you with menus and our gracious staff will help you decide from a list of antojitos, seafood and traditional favorites. Relax and enjoy a superb cocktail (we're not kidding). Did we mention it's affordable? It is..."

 

Logistics:

  • When RSVPing, include your cell number when prompted.
  • Bring cash to expedite paying the bill.
  • Please be on time so that we can all be seated at our reservation time. (consult 511.org for help with directions and public transportation).
  • Tropisueño is centrally located near the Powell BART Station. Detailed directions & parking info are available here.

 

Note: If there is space still available 48 hours before the event, then I will open the RSVPS to the entire membership.

All members who do not show up or cancel at the last minute will be recorded as a NO SHOW in the system (and a star will be added to your profile).

    Did I really get sh*t-faced after only one margarita? OMG, it was so good, as was the delicious salmon ceviche, scallops la plancha and silky smooth flan. My dinner companions were amazing and so much fun to meet. I hope I get to dine with them again soon!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
