Sol Food, San Rafael
During our weekend getaway to San Rafael, we had to stop at one of my favorite restaurants, Sol Food. My sister introduced us to this place a few years ago and since we rarely make it to the North Bay, it's always such a treat. Chris and I both ordered the classic dish, Pollo al Horno, with sweet plantains, the most delicious rice, beans and a salad. The drinks are also amazing, Ponche (mango iced tea and limeade) and Te Helado (orange mango iced tea) being our favorites. And the hot sauce, oh the hot sauce! I can't get enough of it. It's sweet and spicy and but just mild enough that dumping it on everything doesn't overwhelm the dish (sorry Siracha, you've been replaced). If you're in Marin, I highly recommend making a stop here. It's worth the trip!
