Sopa Azteca Tuesday-Thursday at Jaynes

Jayne’s Sopa Azteca is inspired by her days at legendary chef Reed Hearon’s Café Marimba on Chesnut St. in San Francisco. Jayne was server nonpareil and expert at fending off the advances of cheeky regular Don Johnson, who practically lived at Marimba during the run of Nash Bridges.

Sopa Azteca (Aztec Soup) is a tomato-based soup made with Pasilla and Guajillo chiles and slowly braised pulled chicken, garnished with queso fresco, tortilla strips, Mexican oregano, and plump ripe avocado.

A meal in itself. $9

Just smelling its warm aromas from the kitchen this afternoon, this comfort-food soup brought back memories of carefree college days during the dot com boom.

Also back by popular demand…

Alaskan Halibut Ceviche, with avocado, tomatillo salsa, and tortilla chips fried to order (never stale). $12.50

Pair with hand-shaken Hornitos Margarita made with freshly squeezed lime juice (is there any other way to make a great Margarita?) $8
