An offshoot from San Francisco's Tropisueño, this affordable Old Oakland Mexican plays the part of a taqueria by day (complete with salsa bar) and full-service hot spot at night, serving up authentically inspired, yet locally sourced classics; reclaimed wood accents create an inviting vibe, but the action is at the bar where Mexican movies are projected overhead and bartenders pour an array of tequila and mezcal-based cocktails that pay homage to its name (‘the worm').
