On this episode of Una Mordida Tacos Tijuana, our host Chef Danny Betancourt went to “Mariscos Titos” located at Paseo Estrella del Mar #605, Playas de Tijuana. On this occasion he tried two tacos: a fish taco priced at $1.3 dollars ($38 pesos) and a battered shrimp taco priced at $2.3 dollars ($46 pesos).
Battered Shrimp Taco
This taco has battered shrimp, cream, watery guacamole, cabbage, and is served on two corn tortillas. The first thing to note about this taco is its great size. According to our host, three “almost-battered” tacos could be made out of the great amount of ingredients that were used.
When he took his first bite, Chef Danny said that, despite the batter’s thickness, it had a good flavor and it didn’t prevent the shrimp from being tasted. It also didn’t feel greasy. Both the cabbage and the cream lightened up the taco. The ingredient that did not add anything was the watery guacamole. The two tortillas were essential due to the weight of the ingredients and they carried out their function by not breaking. This is why this taco gets a rating of 8.1.
Price: $2.3 dollars ($46 pesos)
This taco has battered fish, cabbage, cream, pico de gallo, watery guacamole, and just like the previous taco, it is served on two corn tortillas. The first thing to note about this taco is that it had three fish slices which sizes were quite good, to the point that when Chef Danny tried to bite them, they didn’t fit in his mouth.
When he tried the taco, Chef Danny confirmed that the batter had a good flavor. Because it was so much, it made the white fish lose its subtle touches. Just like the previous taco, the watery guacamole did not add anything. Between the two tortillas and the flour batter, it made the taco very heavy. This is why it gets a rating of 6.9.
Price: $1.3 dollars ($38 pesos)
