Where in the world is Mariscos German Meyer?

Only one day left in my holy grail search for the perfect seafood taco, and what a sad journey of has been. 3 days ago I went to a parking lot in City Heights only to see... Nothing. Then 2 days ago I tried 2802 ocean blvd and again there was nothing.

Last night I thought it would be safer to try a permanent establishment, so I tried Cuatro Milpas for an early dinner. Arriving at 5pm I found it closed. I had to settle for cafe coyote miles away in old town, which was touristy and disappointing.

So this is it: last chance. Where the F is the GD MGB truck?!

I need to know where it will be Saturday (tomorrow) morning, so I can stuff myself before spending 7 hours in a plane. Yelp suggests there is no (working) phone number, hours of operation are who knows?, and it's even possible some or even all locations now have different names.

  1. Try the parking lot of the grocery store @ 30th & Grape. The truck at 35th & Uni has moved to 35th & El Cajon. Best fish taco is arguably the El Pescador truck in the Toys R Us parking lot in Chula Vista. Palomar exit off the I-5

      +1 for El Pescador. A bonus is that it doesn't move. Their whole menu is good, but their $1.35 fish taco with consommé is the single best deal in SD in my opinion. I could eat five of them easily.

      Exit L street, not Palomar, go back over the freeway, and turn right before the trolley tracks. It's up ahead on your right.


      p.s. Shrimp and arrachera taco is sublime.

        Their torta's mixta and goubenador are also awesome!

        Thanks hounds - dining diva got me there with the 30th and Grape tip, which took me to an IGA parking lot. The governor and fish taco were a perfect end to my California adventure, and I'm so glad I found it. These guys seriously need a website though!

          Actually, they don't need a website, which is part of why it's a cool, quirky experience that harks back to a simpler time when word of mouth was enough to let a business thrive.
          I'm glad you enjoyed the tacos. I eat here pretty often and haven't been let down yet.
