Best Fish or Shrimp Tacos in town

I'm from Baja, after 2 years in Cali I miss the Fish tacos from there. Who has the best Fish or Shrimp tacos in town.
Finally made it to Ricky's Fish Tacos today for the first time and boy was that a great taco. Had the shrimp taco and the fish taco and both were so tasty but the fish taco wins for being so fresh, moist and crunchy all at the same time. Very generous on the fish. Great salsas too. We got there around 2pm, an off time so there was no wait. My son and I had 3 tacos each and drinks for around $20. Amazingly good and highly recommended. Worth the drive from the South Bay.

I've not tried Ricky's (YET) but I love the fish/shrimp tacos at Atwater Village Farmers Market. We get em every Sunday for breakfast!
Ricky posted today on Twitter that he's doing a Baja Tacos Night on September 10, 2011. Keep an eye on http://twitter.com/rickysfishtacos for the details. I wish I could go - he has special lobster tacos that I love - but I'll be out of town. Enjoy the lobster tacos for me! I think they're $5 and they're HUGE.
It's sort of baffling that in Los Angeles, there are so few places that make a great fish taco.
Considering how close we live to Ensenada, you'd think that we'd have developed a communal taste for them long ago and demand would lead to a great fish tacos being commonplace -- but they aren't.
There are even two fast food chains dedicated to fish tacos around -- and neither of them do them very well IMO.
It's a drag for me -- the two places most commonly noted for Baja Fish Tacos on CH are nowhere near my neighborhood.
Maybe I should learn to make them and open a stand in MDR or Culver City?
