Taqueria Cajema, Mesa AZ

I was moving this weekend, and starving. I needed Mexican, and somehow ended up driving all the way down Mesa Drive, to University. (I was looking for Rosa's Grill, which was right there, but closed). I'm so glad I did, because I stopped in and had lunch at Taqueria Cajema. It was a seafood-centric Mexican restaurant, and everything I had was so good. Started with Sol, my favorite Mexican beer. I ordered shrimp Culichi (sp?). It was carmelized onions, beautiful tail-on shrimp, swimming in a green salsa based sauce with cheese melted over it. Served with homemade flour tortillas, I devoured everything, and left feeling uncomfortably full.

My sister's marinated steak enchiladas had a really yummy sauce, better than most. The beans served alongside were addicting (and likely full of lard). Her boyfriend's stingray soup was divine. Now, I can't get it out of my head. Anything similar closer to my new location (in Ahwatukee)? Has anybody else tried this place? Having a serious craving here.
