6. Jefe's Original Fish Taco & Burgers
Fish tacos are the thing to eat in California. Fresh fish is lightly battered, flash fried until golden brown, then served inside a tortilla with some lime and house made crema. They're the perfect protein-rich snack for surfers, skateboarders, and sun worshipers. Don't hop a jet, just get over to Jefe's taco truck and pick up a few Ensenada fish tacos ($2.35 each). Beer battered fish lie on a fresh corn tortilla, then are topped with green cabbage, pico, crema, and fresh lime. It's a taste of the west coast a little closer to home.

Where do chefs at four star restaurants go to get a nosh on their way home from a grueling shift? We were told by more than one their go-to place for authentic Mexican was Mr. Taco on Miami Beach. Giant cast iron pots are slow cooking the sauces and meats used to fill the fresh tortillas. Tacos start at $3.25 for beef, chicken, or veggie and max out at $5.50 for fresh fish and avocado. We love the al pastor ($3.50) with meat freshly sliced straight from the spit. Whatever you order, you'll enjoy authentic flavors at a reasonable price.

I know and many other should be here. I'm Mexican and when they said. " Better than Mexico" is so funny! The only reason I visit Mexico once month is to visit my mom and eat tacos. South Florida in Mexican Food is like Ten years behind.

Although I've never tried them, Chipotle has some deliciously good looking tacos. Co-workers eat them all the time when we go there, I get the bowl. But since they go out of their way to get them, they can't be too bad ?
