We’re always surprised that this little taco stand doesn’t have a line down the block. The seafood tacos are delicious, like the simply fried cod, the nut-crusted halibut, or our favorites, the Acapulco shrimp (which involve marinated shrimp topped with mango salsa and a creamy sauce). Just remember to bring cash with you - they haven’t been able to process credit cards for months.
