San Francisco: Tamarind Prawns at Colibri

I dig this place.

Colibri Mexican Bistro is one of my favorite restaurants in downtown San Francisco. Ryan and I first went here for tapas on our third anniversary a few years ago. I had the chance to go back last month to try their lunch.

Pictured above are some delicious prawns drenched in a tamarind sauce with Colibri’s signature tortillas. The tortillas arrive fresh–delightfully fluffy and warm, yet still sturdy enough to hold copious amounts of sauced seafood. I always tell myself to not waste my appetite on tortillas, but I can’t keep my hands off them. It’s a challenge to not finish the whole plate before the food arrives, not to mention the three salsas that arrive with it.

Enough about tortillas. I had tamarind agua fresca to boot! Tamarind all round! Sure, why not.
