Elda is a bar in the Mission that makes a mix of Caribbean and Latin food. It can get loud inside, so it’s best to come with your friends you know well enough that you don’t have to catch every single word of their story from their Tahoe trip to understand them. If you’re really hungry, you can make a meal out of coming here, but all of the plates are small and good for a quick snack if not. For sharing, go for the sikil pak crudite that’s like spicy hummus made from pumpkin seeds and the summer squash tacos with shiitake mushroom chicharon on fresh corn tortillas. Of the drinks, we like the Vampiros with mezcal and the Hot Stepper with rye, grapefruit, and hot honey that are both spicy but refreshing.
