Baja-style shrimp tacos?

Does anyone know of anywhere in the greater Portland area that sells Baja-style shrimp tacos? I've found other shrimp tacos, but not Baja-style. I've seen a few places w/Baja-style fish tacos- but I am looking for shrimp.

To be what I am looking for, the taco should have:

- Fried shrimp- not fajita-style or sauteed.
- Topped with cabbage and white sauce (which is usually based on crema fresca or mayo- not tartar sauce)- not lettuce or cheese or mango salsa or anything like that. A salsa bar with things like grilled green onions, pickled red onions and cucumber slices would be a great bonus.
- Corn tortillas (often two of them)

I'm willing to travel if anyone knows somewhere that has good shrimp tacos! I have perused the menus of everywhere I can find, and even the mariscos joints like Puerto Marquez don't list shrimp tacos on their menus- just fish tacos.

There's gotta be somewhere around here...
