FullSizeRenderIt’s only been seven weeks since I posted my review of Mosto in the Mission area of San Francisco. Seven short weeks, but in that amount of time so much has changed that I felt obligated to write a new review to keep my readers and eaters up-to-date.

Back in May, I gave this glorious restaurant a 5 paw review. I don’t do that very often as to me 5 paws are saved for the best of the best. Mosto was the best of the best, but something happened and they have fallen hard.

Picture it, 5:20 p.m. on a Monday night. Not a busy time, or day of the week. I patted my furry feet into Mosto and took one of the high top tables. There were perhaps eight other people in the restaurant/bar. In other words, it was not crowded.

My order was simple, a margarita, a cactus taco, an al pastor taco, and a pastrami taco, nothing crazy or difficult. About fifteen minutes later I’m informed that another tables order was put on my bill and so they needed to sit down with me to determine what I had ordered and what on the bill wasn’t mine. There were even a couple of tacos that no one seemed to have ordered on my bill. So after a round of discussions, I received the food that I had ordered.

Nothing on my plate even resembled the wonderful food I had just a few short weeks ago. The cheese on the cactus taco was over cooked, brown, and crunchy. When I bit into the al pastor taco, my immediate thought was that the pork had been sitting out in the sun. It was completely dried out, and no flavor. We won’t even go into the details of what they did to the pastrami taco.

This was without a doubt one of the worst restaurant experiences I’ve had in a quite a while, not only was the service completely out of whack, but the food was total crap. Not what I expected on my return visit to Mosto.

Alas, that will be my last trip to Mosto. I won’t even give them a second chance at redemption. The only reason they are getting two paws instead of one – the margarita.
