LA Weekly's Description

Has Raul Ortega’s Mariscos Jalisco truck really been shelling out its crunchy shrimp tacos for more than a decade, parked in the same industrial stretch a few blocks east of the L.A. River? It seems like just yesterday that we encountered our first bite of tacos dorados de camaron, a shell of fried tortilla stuffed with plump shrimp, drowned in spicy salsa and crowned with a few slices of avocado. Mariscos Jalisco, it's no small exaggeration, changed the way Angelenos considered street food. The truck proved a smash hit at nearly every food festival it attended; it netted a first-place tie in L.A. Taco's Taco Madness 2012 and gained a following worthy of semiprofessional soccer clubs. It's still easy to see why: The shrimp taco here is an ideal street food, able to be grasped with a single hand and crunched down in less than a few bites, filling enough to satisfy on a budget, yet cheap and delicious enough to make you think about ordering a half-dozen more. This is portable Mexican food at its finest.

    BEST SHRIMP TACOS EVER! The shrimp quality is top notch, the tangy flavors distinctive, served on a perfect crispy shell. Prices very reasonable, making the taco worth every penny. As a past winner of the LA Street Food Fest, no "Best of LA" taco list is complete without Mariscos Jalisco.

    Raul Ortega might personally hand you a taco, ask if you want to try a plate of ceviche or aguachile. His signature tacos dorados de camaron, fried tacos with shrimp, are just too formidable.

    A shell of fried tortilla stuffed with plump shrimp, drowned in spicy salsa crowned with a few slices of avocado. Mariscos Jalisco changed the way Angelenos considered street food. Also at Tacolandia!

  • Tasting Table on 07/05/12

    Try the shrimp taco dorados which are fried, leaving the tortillas crisp-edged and wonderfully crunchy:

    Why settle for just Taco Tuesday when you can have Mariscos Miércoles también!

  • Daniel K. on 03/30/13

    The fried shrimp tacos are smothered with good stuff and taste divine. Only $1.75 each so order at least 5 a person. Get a refreshing tostada to mix it up. People are super friendly.
