Here we are, cruising right into March and Week 9 of our 52 Weeks of Tacos. Time flies when you’re living the dream in SoCal, noshing on really bomb tacos, am I right? March brings us some gorgeous sunshine and good vibes, so naturally, we’re craving fish tacos. No one can hit that crispy crunchy beer battered crema laced craving quite like Oscar’s Mexican Seafood. Today, we’re spotlighting two of our go-tos: their octopus taco and their beer battered fish taco. If you haven’t tried this spot, don’t even finish reading this, go now!
Okay, you stuck around so let’s get to talking tacos. Oscar’s battered fish tacos are served with the usual suspects – cabbage, onion, tomato, cilantro – and are a hefty size for a cool $1.99 per. Super fresh flaky white fish, crispy beer batter, a hot tortilla – is there any better way to welcome Spring?
If you’re craving something a little different from your traditional fish taco, you can’t go wrong with Oscar’s grilled Octopus taco (pulpo) served with cabbage, onion, tomato, cilantro, avocado, and cheese. Their grilled, meaty chunks of fresh octopus are tender and full of flavor, piled high enough you won’t be leaving hungry.
With their original location on Turquoise Street and spots in Encinitas, Pacific Beach, Hillcrest, and the East Village you’ve got plenty of opportunities to quench your cravings for Oscar’s Mexican Sea Food. You won’t be disappointed!
YEW! Tip: Don’t skimp on the chips and guac, they’re dynamite!
