My favorite fish taco; whats' yours?

  • n

Taco Nazo which is now Senior Baja.

The fish has to be the freshest I have tasted at any joint. Everything is fresh but what gives it that extra flavor is the suace. I have no idea what how they make it but it compliments the fish perfectly!

What's your favorite place?

(lets not make this a my place is better than your place, just state your fav. joint and why. Then we can all take our time and try each others favorite joints!)

    1. i have to most humbly agree....thank the Lord thay have an outpost in temecula.

      i think they use talapia....i have seen the spinal area of the fish unlike fishstick places.

      i like the roasted yellow jalapenos and pickled red onion as well

      1. Where is this location?

        1. El Siete Mares on Ceasar Chavez in E. LA. I really like the batter. If you will, these are manly fish tacos in comparison to Baja Esenada whose fish tacos are more delicate.

          1. "Taco Nazo which is now Senior [sic] Baja."

            It's a little more complicated than that. There are a few factions within the family that are splitting off from the original chain.

            As far as I can tell, there is 'El Taco-Nazo', 'Taco Nazo', and now 'Senor Baja'.

            Quality definitely varies from location to location, with my last visit to the Valley Blvd. (La Puente) location sucking hard. The Garvey Ave. (S. El Monte) location was very good on my last visit, but that was over a year ago, so who knows what it's like now...

            For me, the best (and most consistent) fish taco at this point in time is at Tacos Baja Ensenada. Hands down.

              Agree. TBE is the best I've had. (Russkar, btw, swears by a place called Amapola Mexican Grill (7414 Florence Ave., in Downey, (562) 806-7181), which I myself have yet to try.)

                I had 2 baja tacos yesterday and was a happy camper.

                Oh, and I added some of that hot sauce that has lime in it... omg... so good.
