Made a quick stop at the new-ish Fresca's Mexican Grill in Tustin (almost in Santa Ana) recently to follow up on the Fast Food Maven's recommendation to me to try their shrimp tacos. Fresca's is Orange County-based and similar to a lot of other fresh mex chains around here but it does have a few touches of authenticity you wouldn't expect.


So I ordered a shrimp taco and a chicken taco and loaded up on some chunky red salsa, some of the hottest escabeche I've ever had, some salsa verde and some horchata:


The thing I liked about the shrimp taco was that the shrimp were very fresh and plump and meaty with a hint of pineapple glaze and pineapple salsa. I wanted to get some flan but I've been trying to not have too much dessert lately.

They are also advertising some pretty good deals:

I wonder what their crispy tacos taste like; if they are fresh fried or pre made shells.

I am on a crispy taco hunt.

hey, you never posted or responded to my site improvement suggestions :(

I don't know if I've ever had a crispy taco from Fresca's. I'll be posting your other comment too.

I pass by here every day and have wondered about this place. Thanks for the review. My favorite taco fillings are shrimp or fish (tied) and carne asada. So if this place has good shrimp, I'm all over it.

Yeah, try a shrimp taco from there when you can and leave a comment here.
