fish tacos on wheels in {san diego}...


When moving to San Diego recently, everyone talked about the infamous "fish taco" that you have to get in San Diego. With our proximity to Mexico, the fish tacos here are certainly the best I've had outside of Mexico. My new favorite fish taco comes from the streets of San Diego at Marisco's German Taco Truck in City Heights. Marisco's offers authentic, non-pretentious street food tacos that make me happy to be eating in a cement parking lot. The seating is no frills and is made up of a couple plastic tables and chairs under a tent. But each fish taco is only $1.00, so a meal for two {including 4 tacos, 2 soups, and 2 sodas} runs $7.00!

Final thoughts...4 out of 5 happy ladies for quick, cheap, fresh fish tacos. I wish the tortillas were more fresh-off-the-skillet, but otherwise it's a cheap thrill not to be missed. There are a bunch of trucks from the Marisco family throughout the city, so if you're local, you don't have to go far to find one.
