Sending you to a Toys-R-Us Parking Lot - CV

...for a fish taco you can finally be proud of here in San Diego.

I swear, Masa assassin is able to lick his index finger and point it up into the wind and discover some of the most promising Mexican street foods here in San Diego.

His latest chance discovery is El Pescador Lonchera [truck] in a -no joke- toysrus parking lot just off the L St. Exit of the 5 in Chula.

Fish Tacos run only 1.25 a pop and they are the best of the several post-Godoy "dessert" tacos we had yesterday leaning next to the truck.

Finally, we experienced a crisp golden beer battered taco that starts to whisper of Ensenada with its haunting Mexican oregano flavor. This is the first memorable fish taco I have had in a long time in SD.

We also tried the Chamoro con pulpo - something we haven't seen offered elsewhere on SD Marisco dive menus. It is a chopped up griddled mussel and octupus taco with veg. It was pretty tasty though I am not likely to order it again. It possessed a nice mineraly mussel quality though it was quite salty.

The marlin taco was much more shredded and in pieces with veg than what you normally get at German. It was better than the last [disappointing] Marlin taco I had at the Barrio restaurant but not as good as the carnitas nuggets you get at the University Lonchera.

I had to say Adios to my friend a little early to leave for work while the instoppable Masa assassin waited for a Taco Gob.

The squirt bottle of a orange habanero salsa is good - citrusy and not very hot.
