Tacos Ensenada – Authentic and Fresh! A must for hole-in-the-wall Mexican Food Junkies
24601 Raymond Way
Lake Forest, CA 92630
For those of you who really like Mexican food and look for the best holes in the wall to get real regional flavors, then this place is for you. The menu contains traditional fare like burritos and enchiladas, but they also have great dishes like Chile Verde, tortas, tostadas. What is truly remarkable is their wide selection of Seafood choices from shrimp tacos, to octopus tostadas. I give this restaurant a 4 out of 5 stars, meaning I will recommend it to friends and actively try to eat it as much as I can.
Below are pictures of the dishes we tried
Custom Omelette - This thing is bigger than your face! Enough for two people and it was good! 3 out of 5, but a deserves an extra star for the size
Ceviche Tostada with Octopus and Shrimp! I havent had this good of a seafood tostada since I worked in East L.A. or Lived in Carson. 4 out of 5 stars.
