Mariscos Los Corales is a Mexican empire with a lonchera and this brick-and-mortar spot in Santa Ana. The shrimp tacos at this Nayarit-style Mexican seafood restaurant/taco truck are unlike any found in Orange County. Instead of small shrimp mixed with cabbage and a sauce and folded into a corn tortilla, they grind the shrimp, mix in red onions, then stuff them in a tortilla that gets the fried treatment akin to potato tacos. The shrimp becomes sweeter due to the grease; the taco shell glistens. And the fish taco is so buttery and crunchy—as close to eating chicharones while still keeping kosher. They also sell big glasses of shrimp cocktails, furious dishes of aguachile (the legendary Sinaloan staple of raw shrimp marinated in chilled lime juice and sluiced with a furious jalapeño salsa), and all the cold buckets of beer you can ever hope to drink in a morning.
