Mixiote is possibly moving to 350 Mission St. according to a recent DPH filing with the city of San Francisco. The family-owned business is run by Alma Rodriguez, who could not be reached for comment.
It is suspected that Mixiote will be open towards the end of 2021. While Mixiote has been known to serve customers from the Ohana Floor, the 61st floor of the Salesforce East Tower at 350 Mission St., it’s also possible that they are taking over the space previously home to Trailblazer Tavern.
Rodriguez immigrated to the United States with her son over a decade ago from her native Mexico City. Combining her love for traditional Mexican cuisine with her zest for discovering new flavors in her new home, Rodriguez wanted to bring something to the table that hasn’t already been done.
She decided to bring mixiotes to the San Francisco food scene via pop ups and catering services, calling her business Mixiote. A mixiote is meat marinated in a special green chile guajillo sauce, then covered in avocado leaves and wrapped in banana leaves to keep the meat moist.
This special preparation method is known to give the meat a distinct flavor that is native to Mexico, yet not found in most traditional Mexican dishes. The meat can be enjoyed on its own, as tacos, or in appetizers.
