santa cruz/capitola

Would love to hear about good restaurants in this area, especially mexican, japanese, thai, seafood, and anything else that's outstanding. Nothing too expensive, and preferably kid-friendly. Once had outstanding fish and shrimp tacos at some little taqueria near the main street of Santa Cruz, but couldn't remember the name of the place for the life of me; if anyone has a suggestion as to what that might be or an equivalent to it, that would be great...

    Cafe Cruz off of 41st Ave is wonderful

      For fish tacos, Tucson Taqueria in Scotts Valley does them as good as any I've had, including in Baja; the rest of the menu is stellar as well.

        ditto... my favorite... lots of good fresh cilantro. The quesadilla is great too!
