Baja Fish Market: Tacos to Make the Baby Jesus Cry

San Pedro is one of the last truly working-class port towns left in California. Unlike its fancy-pants neighbors Palos Verdes and Long Beach (well, at least the parts of Long Beach that are, you know, along the beach), you can still find a diverse population, low-cost housing, and most importantly, good cheap eats.

A friend of mine introduced me to Baja Fish Market a few months back, and he swore up-and-down that “the fish trucks come straight from the docks to deliver the day’s catch at their back door!” Ever since, my boyfriend and I have made it our solemn duty to trek out to this unassuming strip-mall seafood shack at least once a month to consume some of the freshest, most flavorful fish the Pacific Ocean can muster. Normally I would hesitate to make such a bold claim, but I’m pretty sure these are the best fish tacos in Southern California. (Make a liar out of me and send me your recommendations!)
