I am not realy a seafood lover, but I had these tacos when I was on vacation
Aug 2010 - loved the fish tacos ,the best! It was worth the wait, very long line.

Term Paper

I think your "El Mural" Restaurant is top Restaurant in the Guadalajara.Well I also fond of eat fishes and also catch.But I am not a good cooked like you.May i visit your Restaurant?

Mario

Is this "estilo La Paz, baja" or the names is only about the street.

This taco stand sounds good
but you have to try the source : La Paz, Baja California Sur, where taco fish are from...

haha, just today I ate taco fish here.

Mario, these fish and shrimp tacos are as good as anything BCS can dish up. I started eating fish tacos nearly 30 years ago, from a cart in Ensenada, and trust me, I know the real deal! These are worth the trip to Guadalajara! Cristina

I have tried the tacos at the Taco Fish several times.. But a new place opened in Guadalajara that surpasses them by far... Its called BajaFish, they have a special batter that i have not tasted anywhere else its a crunchy light batter... the ones at the La Paz corner are very greazy.. This ones here are really light, and if you have them with flour tortilla,, wow... They have a salad and salsa bar that is free all you can eat. They have chipotle perejil and other dressings that complement really well with the tacos. They also have onions in soaked in habanero that is really good.. And sangria lettuce salad and a pasta salad are there for the taking... The prices are the same or less than the ones at La Paz street, and you could sit down at a table and get served... The place is impecably clean and the food is delicious... The owner lived in Orange County CA for 20 years so English is not a problem.. I highly recomend them. BajaFish is located at 1880 Lopez de Legaspi two blocks from the Colon light rail station..

This Fish Taco stand on Avenida La Paz in Guadalajara sounds like ‘Taco Nirvana’.

My experience in Mexico is that some of the best places to eat are those that are off the beaten path that the locals frequent.

I’ve been looking for good places to eat in Guadalajara and Taco Fish La Paz in Guadalajara sounds like just the place.

Fortunately, I live in Ajijic, Jalisco so the trip is a short one.

I’ll come back and comment on this blog with my impressions of the fish taco stand.

My mouth is watering,

Gracias!

Taco Fish La Paz in Guadalajara is, with out a doubt, one of the best and my absolute personal favorite taco stand. Of course it's hardly a taco stand but more like taco fine dining street side. I love the unlimited sides and condiment cart. I try to go there at least once a month, from Ajijic.

Alex

I passed by this puesto - right after eating at Las Nueve esquinas - its just south of there no?

Cristina says: Taco Fish La Paz is actually due west of Las Nueve Esquinas, on Av. La Paz. Too bad you didn't stop for a shrimp or fish taco!
