Mariscos Los Corales

Location Description:

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.
