Tocho might just be one of the best mariscos joints in LA/OC. Easily top 3.
There is no one doing mariscos this style. No one.
Located on Alameda inside Santana Tires and not far from Imperial Courts PJ’s.
You can’t miss the bright blue truck.
Tostada Pariente. Should have took a better pic, but this tostada has all of their salsas. Every piece of seafood was great, not over marinated. That green salsa is no joke.
Roja and Negra.
Both were excellent, but the Negra has a more interesting flavor, more mild, savory, with a small hint of sweet.
Taco Tocho. Steak, shrimp, and cheese. Looks bland but full of flavor. Tasted a little soy in the steak, very juicy. They can do this over fries or in a burrito.
Shrimp Consommé. Shrimpy and a little citrusy. I bought this after I finished the tostadas and taco, and it was $6!! It was good but not worth it in my opinion. I have no idea of the prices for everything else.
Order anything off of here.
I am declaring this place a must. This ain’t the typical mariscos place you see on the streets, (I still fuks with that). The tostadas here are unique. I have not been to El Coraloense though.
Get your ass over, Fri-Sunday only.
