Sol y Luna Taqueria
CLOSED  1926 Shattuck Ave./Hearst Ave, downtown.  Narrow and deep, this cheery spot specializes in Michoacan cuisine and has both indoor and outdoor seating.  After ordering at the counter, visit the salsa bar where you’ll find a giant bowl of freshly made tortilla chips plus a changing group of condiments that includes salsas, pickled carrots, and beans.  The drinking water jug dispenses water lightly flavored with fruit—watermelon, strawberries—and cucumbers.  Orders are brought to the table.  Among the menu selections are a tasty guarache ranchero, crispy tacos, big burritos, yummy sopes, and a fried chicken torta that someone on yelp says “slaps Bakesale Betty's sandwich in the face and kicks it in the crotch!”  Fillings include carne asada steak, carnitas, broiled chicken, soya, and organic tofu.
