Sol Food, best find in Marin

A lot of people ask us what are some of our favorite restaurants in Bay Area.

One of the first answer that comes to mind is a Puerto Rican restaurant called Sol Food in downtown San Rafael in Marin County. Every time we visit Dan's parents we make a point to stop for at least one meal at this local spot.

The chicken combo plate (Pollo Al Horno) is excellent. The meat is so tender, juicy, and flavorful. The plate also comes with salad, beans (pinto or black), rice and plantains. I like the pinto beans because it also comes with olives. And we always go for the maduros (sweet plantains). It adds a nice sweetness to the meal. Be warned you get a lot of food with the combo plate (you can choose 1, 2, or 3 pieces of chicken). We usually share one between us, and we both leave stuffed and very satisfied.

The sour/spicy hot sauce in a Corona bottle on the tables is also a nice compliment to almost everything on the plate. It really brings out the flavor, if you like adding a little spice to your experience.

We also recommend the Veggie Deluxe sandwich. It comes out warm. The cilantro-lime mayo with the avocado, cheese, and veggies in between the toasted bread make for such a fantastic mix of creamy, savory, slightly sweet, and crunchy bliss in each bite.

I also love the Mango Ice Tea. So refreshing, alhough Dan thinks it's a little too sweet! :)

Whenever we come, usually for lunch, there's always a line, so be prepared to wait to order and then to find a seat. And why wouldn't you? It's crowded for a reason.
