Mariscos Jalisco Truck Downtown

It’s a truck, but it’s always in about the same place near the corner of Towne and 10th downtown in the fashion district. They are really nice, and they have little stools you can sit on if you decide to eat there.

As the sign says, they’re selling tacos de camaron, and they are delicious. They also have ceviche, both shrimp and fish.

What you’re looking at here are two tacos back to back with the folds placed together. So you basically pick up half of this to eat it. It looks hard to eat, but it’s surprisingly not a complete mess. That’s because they deep fry the tacos after they make them. And that makes the flavor of the corn jump right out in your first bite. The other thing to notice is that in addition to the large, fresh tasting shrimp, they have a very small amount of what tasted like chicharones which gives it some texture and adds a saltiness to complement the shrimp. The salsa on top is very fresh and in addition to the flavor, the avocado keeps the salsa from being too one-note. These were some great tacos.

Is this a second truck of the same famous maricos jalisco or totally different or did they just switch location?

I believe it is the second outpost of the same famous Mariscos Jalisco. Either that or they completely copied the original’s paint job, menu, and dishes. I have found them to be equally delicious.

This place embodies what makes LA dining so great. A random truck doing a random dish magnificently well. Those tacos are perfect. They really are.
