i believe yuca’s is mexican.
there’s a baja cali in alhambra. last week there was quite a line. don’t know about tacos baja. but the $.99 fish tacos on tuesdays are quite popular. one piece of nicely crispy fried fish and large enough to take at least four bites and i’m not a dainty eater.
the red onions on the side are flavored with herbs that include oregano.
and yes, i ate 6 of them.
the pasadena location has yet to open, but they look close to being ready.
so i went to tacos ensenada (altadena on lincoln in the same parking lot at super king)
for my $.99 fish taco fix
slightly smaller, not quite as crispy, but still a 3-4 bite sized fish taco for $.99.
and since we’re in the neighborhood, tacos ponclitan sp?)across the street on lincoln serves tacos on thurs (and possibly friday) nights. they specialize in cuisine from guadalajara/jalisco w/ DIY salsa bar.
of particular interest are the cebolitas (sp?) deep fried
