My San Diego Bites: Tacos and More Tacos

January 3, 2016

Two full days in San Diego meant just enough time to enjoy the sun and of course, a few fish tacos here and there.

Our hotel in Pacific Beach was only a block away from Oscar’s Mexican Seafood, a great casual spot to stop by for a bite or two after a day at the beach.

The fish stew was full of fresh fish chunks and vegetables in a light chicken broth.  Delicious and light, a good prelude to the fresh tacos to come.

You really can’t go wrong with any number of the tacos that Oscar’s serves, including a wonderfully crispy battered fish taco and the surf and turf.  Most came topped with crunchy cabbage slaw and fresh tomatoes and onions.  A smattering of cilantro and slices of avocado for creaminess, we happily devoured these with the plethora of hot sauces that were found on the tables.

Aren’t these some of the most colorful fresh tacos you have ever laid eyes on?

Our second stop for tacos, Puesto Mexican Street Food, did not disappoint either.  We popped by the La Jolla outpost of this popular restaurant for a quick lunch after our taco dinner at Oscar’s.

Lunch started with guacamole and a bowl of grilled Mexican corn accompanied by a refreshing cup of frozen cinnamon horchata.

From those, we moved onto the main event where I mixed and matched for a trio of tacos…

Of course, an order of baja tacos with chile crema, avocado and shredded cabbage for the table to round out the meal.

Whether enjoyed in a seaside shack or a hip La Jolla restaurant, fried or battered, fish tacos are must haves when visiting San Diego.  The sunshine and beach are just nice to haves when you are stuffing your stomachs full of tacos and Mexican food.
