Best Sangria - 2006
Cha Cha Cha
We love Cha Cha Cha, but not for the reasons you'd expect. The food at this location is better than what's served at the restaurant's Mission District outpost, but the service is similarly spotty, the din is equally deafening, and the Afro-Cuban décor is even louder. No matter; once you dig into your tasty tapas and start on a pitcher of perfect sangria, all you'll notice is the delightfully obscure reggae on the stereo and the festive, youthful crowd. The sangria comes in both date- and group-sized pitchers and is sweet, perky, and strong. Recommended dishes include the garlic mushrooms, calamari, and fried plantains. The perfect follow-up to a few glasses of fruity tropical goodness awaits just down the street a buzzed trip to Amoeba is one escapade you won't regret in the morning.
