Good Shrimp/Fish Tacos, False Advertising at Baja Cachanilla
|Cachanilla is also a plant...|
I've always enjoyed the shrimp and fish tacos at Baja Cachanilla in SanTana--each juicy, plump, on handmade tortillas and topped with one of the thicker, sweeter fish taco creams you'll find. It's better than Baja Fresh just a couple of blocks down Bristol, and Wahoo's a couple of blocks down further.
But I doubt I'll ever review this restaurant for This Hole-in-the-Wall Life, because its name pisses me off.
But Baja Cachanilla offers no such regional specialties, other than its saltier-than-usual table salsa, recipient of a couple drops of soy sauce. The tacos, of course, are more common in the coastal regions of Baja California, not its desert. And the only distinctive dish on the menu--chilorio, a type of pork fried in chile--is from the state of Sinaloa and no longer offered. Sigh...
Baja Cachanilla, 1431 W. Warner Ave., Santa Ana, (714) 754-1990. Good shrimp tacos, though!
