I've actually lived in the Bay Area, and besides loving SF burritos, was seriously underwhelmed by the Mexican fare. HOW how how did I miss out on discovering Las Camelias? In particular seeing as how my Jewish friends have known the owners for years and our friendly chat upon arrival made us feel right at home. Las Camelias serves up not only has the best mole I've EVER had (each flavor distinct and crisp - clearly homemade the right way), they also had some crazy Diablo sauce which actually does make you feel that you are living in sin. Order chicken enchiladas with either sauce and you cannot go wrong...the chicken they use is organic quality stuff - plus a twist on refritos, using white beans instead of pinto - a refreshing and delicious change of pace! The owners clearly have style, class and culinary education/experience way beyond that of your standard Mexican fare, and you reap the rewards as their prices are more reasonable than makes sense for this level of gourmet Mexican...it is too good to be true! If you like Mexican food and live in the Bay Area, go visit your friends in Marin - and take them to Las Camelias!
