Mariscos? Fish Tacos?


I love to listen to Michael Connelly´s audio books about Harry Bosch. It eases my california longing for a while.

I guess Connelly either loves or hates food, because there is a lot of restaurant name dropping.

Bosch always, at least once in every book, have a bite in some marisco stand, and that sounds really appetizing. Fish tacos doesn´t exist in Sweden, neither marisco stands.

We are going back to Santa Monica and Venice this summer.

Where can we find these cheap food stands? Do they exist?

They are everywhere - especially in Santa Monica/Venice, along Lincoln Blvd.

Ask this question on chowhound.com to find local's favorites, or go to lataco.com where you'll find the address to every taco stand and truck that exists, pretty much.

Our favorite is Tacos Por Favor, in Santa Monica on Olympic at 14th. They use the best ingredients ( roma tomatoes, chicken breast, no lard, etc.) and the tacos, sopas and enchiladas are amazing. There is seating but very casual and a bit noisy. Fresh salsas are made all day long. Be sure to order the Mexican Coke in the bottle (no high fructose corn syrup; much better then the US version).
