Nopalito
  306 Broderick St./Oak St., Lower Haight, across from DMV.  This popular Mexican spot often requires a long wait.  Menu favorites include posole, ceviche, carnitas, and any of the delicious moles.  My companion and I shared vegetarian potato-spinach taquitos and a plate of chicken enchiladas with mole.  Housemade seasonal fruit paletas (popsicles) make a refreshing dessert.  Unfortunately, margaritas are available only unblended and served in ordinary glasses; fortunately, they are big and potent.  A large selection of Mezcals and Tequilas are available, and housemade non-alcoholic drinks include guava juice, organic almond horchata, and Blue Bottle coffee.  Complimentary niceties include spicy roasted chickpeas to nibble on while you peruse the menu (I found them addictive and ordered up some to take home with me), housemade sparkling tap water, and almond cookies with the check; chips and salsa are additional. 
          A Peet’s and upscale Falletti market are next door.
