Aguachiles El Tamarindo

Family-friendly Mexican seafood truck.

Aguachiles El Tamarindo is a family-owned mariscos truck on International Boulevard, a short walk from Fruitvale station. The food truck is owned by the same family behind the El Grullense empire. Even though this truck is a spin-off of their sit-down restaurant and two nearby trucks, Aguachiles el Tamarindo stands out for its superior quality.

This spot is really all about the seafood. The fish and shrimp tacos come covered in a mildly hot, creamy sauce with diced cabbage. They also offer carne asada tacos. And what could be more refreshing to wash down your seafood dish than a delicious BYOB michelada? Bring a beer of your choice and pour it into a tall glass that they’ve primed with juice and seasoning. You can get ten tacos and a drink for just $26 here. You can’t beat that!

Located in what used to be a used car lot, Aguachiles El Tamarindo has its own little lot with some parking spaces. They also have a covered eating area with some plastic tables where you can sit down to enjoy your meal. The outdoor seating is shaded and they play music so you’re not just listening to the street traffic. Stop by today to have a delicious and affordable meal in a fun atmosphere!
