Home to a diverse population, San Francisco is culture dense city. Many ethnic groups have established themselves throughout the foggy city and created districts like Japantown, Chinatown, North Beach, and the Mission District. The Mission District is commonly referred to as "the Mission" and is the one of the oldest in San Francisco. What the Mission is known for is the Hispanic culture that thrives in this area. Throughout the Mission are a number of shops and eateries that embrace Hispanic culture. A couple of well known eateries are La Palma and El Farolito - both known for their authentic takes on Hispanic dishes like tamales and tacos.
