On the corner of Iowa and El Cajon is a taco shop describing itself as being "estilo Veracruz" or in the style of the Mexican Port city where almost all of her invadors came through.
I went inside to ask about this. Not much in the way of super traditional VZ cooking but you can get octupus tacos, alambres, and quesadillas. One of their marisco specialites is Shrimp with Cactus.
So if you are in the area - and craving Mexican - you may want to check it out.
