Pink ice plant flower (Carpobrotus edulis, Aizoaceae)
Pink ice plant flower (Carpobrotus edulis, Aizoaceae), San Francisco Bay Trail. This South African native plant is a popular ground cover along highways in coastal California, but it’s also an aggressive invasive that can easily overrun fragile coastal habitats.

Tacos al pastor – Taqueria El Mexicano

Tacos al pastor Taqueria El Mexicano
Spicy pork with onions, hot salsa, and cilantro on corn tortillas with lime and radishes. $1 each
Taqueria El Mexicano, South San Francisco CA

Mmm, I sometimes head to the Taqueria El Mexicano taco truck to in the afternoon when I start getting hunger pangs. The tacos are delicious and at only $1 each, they won’t break the bank. It seems that the truck near the corner of Utah Ave and South Airport Blvd changes, but the tacos are always good.
