Taco Nazo in La Habra is the outpost of a legendary San Gabriel chain that sells fish tacos. The hype is largely right about Taco Nazo’s main dish: the fish taco is fluffy crunch at its most ethereal, the fish encased in clouds of golden batter, the flesh buttery and silky, the stream of crema slightly sour, slightly spicy—as refreshing as their agua de piña—and what ties everything together. Even better are the shrimp tacos, a colony of them smushed together and encased in that wondrous batter. And I actually think the best thing Taco Nazo sells are the fish and shrimp tortas, the bold flavors of their stars expanded upon a hefty bolillo—after eating through one of these behemoths, you’re almost tempted to leave the fish taco cult altogether just to worship this god.
