A while ago, Alex (kare_raisu) posted a review of a mariscos truck doing what he described as the best Baja-style fish tacos in SD. I've now been a couple of times, and can report that he wasn't kidding - these are some great fish tacos. Nicely fried, on fresh tortillas, with just the right amount of cabbage and white sauce. The salsas on hand are pretty good too, one habanero, and one chile de arbol (I think). They also have raw red onions w/ chilies and black pepper, which add a nice bite to the tacos.
The name of the truck is Mariscos El Pescador. Here's a map to the location:
Definitely worth your time. Fish tacos are only $1.25. I can't think of a better lunch for less than $4.
Josh, is that Chula Vista? If so, I think that's the same parking lot that has a truck doing Torta Ahogada. Supposed to be the best Torta Ahogada in SD. I know you're not doing the commodity meat bit any more, but if you're so inclined, or have a friend that's so inclined, that truck may also be worth some investigation.
This is the only place in SD I have seen offer Choros - Mussels. Thanks for refreshing everyone about the place Josh
Here is the Link to the original post. regarding El Pescador.
On a side note the owner of Kikos on 35th and University is related to the Owner of Mariscos German. Most of thier tacos are very similar and menus almost identical however I give the edge to German.
