Where to go for good Shrimp burritos/tacos in LA?

I was in San Diego last month and had some awesome Shrimp burritos (shrimp diabla). Since then i've been craving this. Anyone know where to go to get this in LA?

  1. Senor Fish, one downtown in Little Tokyo, but much prefer the one in So. Pasadena, Mission and Grand. Not little shrimps, but bigger ones. Lots of different fish. Enjoy

    1. I enjoy La Playita in Santa Monica on Lincoln Blvd. Divey but good!

      1. Try the Camarones A La Diabla at El Jacal made with a Hot deep crimson sauce. This place has several very good shrimp dishes and each is made with a different sauce. I have tried them all and each is very good. They will make tacos or burritos if you wish. You should also try the asada taco made with asada and some fresh avacado slices. Oh, that goat soup....Perfect. The shrimp cocktail -- well, not that good but that's ok cinsidering they make so many other things right.

        El Jacal
        13414 Ramona Blvd
        Baldwin Park, CA 91706-3902
        (626) 813-4419
        Open 7 days, 8am to 9pm.
        Several blocks East of the 605

        1. I don't know if they count as shrimp diabla, but the shrimp burritos at La Serenata Gourmet are excellent. Love that sauce. Pico, just west of Westwood Blvd.

          1. Taqueria Sanchez is known and loved for its shrimp tacos and other shrimp dishes. It is near the borders of Culver City/Mar Vista/WLA on the west side of Centinela south of Washington north of Culver, with parking in the back. They do a wonderful job of marinating and cooking the shrimp succulent without making them rubbery. The last time I was there the shrimp tacos were about $1.65, served with chips and a good salsa bar. They also do a fine al pastor or carnitas for about $1.25 per taco. Really good place, though they close early in the evening -- expect a fast-moving line during prime lunch hours.
