Ocean Taqueria: Customizable Goodness as Big as a Human Limb

And you thought we were exaggerating.

And you thought we were exaggerating.

Choosing Mexican food usually means heading to the Mission, where the choices are plenty and the competition is stiff. For residents in Ingleside and the Sunset, the choices aren’t as many, but there are a few taqueria standouts. One of these is Ocean Taqueria, a hole-in-the-wall on Ocean Avenue that serves good, fresh Mexican food. The meal of choice here is the burrito, which comes in many different forms, shapes, and sizes. You can order the Baby Burrito ($5 — no distinction in size or shape from a standard burrito), or go all out with the Jumbo Burrito ($10.50), which is about the length of a grown man’s forearm.
Ocean offers different types of tortillas, including flour, corn, spinach, and tomato, as well as a variety of meats. Stick to the carne asada or grilled chicken, which are grilled to order, making it into the burrito hot and fresh off the fire. If you like, the cooks will grill the meat with red and green peppers and onions, a nice option most taquerias don’t offer.
Ocean also lets you customize your burrito exactly as you want it, rather than defaulting to a regular set of ingredients. You get to choose from different types of beans, rice, lettuce, salsas, sour cream, cheese, guacamole, cilantro, onions, and jalapeños. Ocean Taqueria is a little gem tucked away on Ocean Avenue, a nice alternative to the Mission for people in Ingleside and the Sunset.
