      I like the shrimp tacos at Senor Fish (South Pas. location), and the scallop burrito. Both are really good,...prefer the scallops in the's more a matter of texture than taste, so could see ingredients being interchangeable and working either way. (Locations in Alhambra and Eagle Rock, tho' haven't been to Alh.).

      1. re: Local

        Also a Senor Fish downtown.

        I find that the scallop flavor is much more potent if you request them grilled, either in the burrito or (my preference) a taco. For whatever couch-cushion-change it costs, you simply cannot beat the value of a ~$3 freshly grilled scallop taco without getting your passport stamped.

        1. re: ttriche

          absolutely agree re grilled scallops...granted i've only had the scallops grilled, so really can't speak re comparion, but they are excellent... tho' have had the taco both with fried and grilled shrimp and prefer the fried..go figure ;-)

    2. Well if you don't mind that they are battered, Tacos Baja Ensenada makes GREAT burritos with shirmp!

      Also, there are several Marisco Taco Trucks around town at Lunch Time. One just off the 10 on City Terrance near Eastern.


      1. does anyone know of a great taco truck of a tortiall lady that caters for party's?? I have one coming up in the Palisades.....

        1. Ya, Like-Go-Eat? thanks you. Hey, I tried those other places mentioned and still think Tacos la Bufadora is best. Try the shrimp burrito. I ask them to only put in the burrito what they put on the taco -- no rice and no beans. This shrimp burrito is my fav. The shrimp tacos are also perfecrt. On Wendsday the fish tacos are $1.00 and are outstanding.

            Puebla Tacos No. 2 on Allen/Villa, Pasadena- both for shrimp tacos and burritos...freshly made tortillas. Add green salsa, pico de gallo...good stuff.
