Planning a Sunday Casual Mexican Crawl

RChicago | Mar 13, 201202:49 PM

We'll be driving from Anaheim to Pasadena and would like to eat Mexican food along the way. We'd like to include some fish/seafood stops as what we have in Chicago generally isn't very good. I understand that a lot of the taco trucks are only open at night, so I've tried to include a few that look like they are open for lunch.

What's below is what I was able to come up with from this site and elsewhere on the web. Obviously, with just two of us, we won't be making all the stops. I'm guessing four stops would be doable if we're only order a few items at each spot. I'd appreciate advice about what we shouldn't miss, whether I'm missing anything, and whether anything I have below is incorrect. I'm hoping to not go to far off of our route.

East LA:
Sergio's (fast food) - carne asada & al pastor
Taco's Baja Encenada (fast food) - fish tacos
Mariscos Jalisco (truck) - shrimp avocado tacos
Cinco Puntos (fast food) - amazing carnitas tacos (add nopales)
Guisados Tacos (fast food) - more upscale tacos

Approaching Pasadena:
El Mar Azul (truck) - cocktails, tostadas (both seafood)
La Estrella (fast food) - carnitas
My Taco (sit down?) - barbacoa
Rambo's (truck) - asada & carnitas

Thanks again for all your help.
