Mariscos German Beyer is one of the seafood trucks that I have been a fan of for a couple of years. Their portions are generous and affordable, their service is fast, on point and of course their staff is always very nice and attentive; the truck’s surroundings are kept very clean, they even have a recycling bucket next to the trash, which are bonus points with me.
Once you have placed your order, German’s truck gives you a consome rich in flavor served with veggies, bits of fish and shrimp; but don’t forget to add the pickled purple onions that have been marinating with bits of habanero, to ad that little spicy kick. Oh yeah, pay attention to the “MUCHACHO/ MUCHACHA!” that just means your order is ready.
I began my lunch with a fish taco that will only cost you $1.25 which is average among the seafood trucks, but trust me that fish taco with its crispy outer shell and savory shrimp inside is more than enough when you’ve had their complementary consome to go along. Also try their Salsa de 7 Chiles” (a favorite among the regulars) its a mix of the rich Crema Blanca they use for the tacos but with 7 different chiles…hence the name “Salsa de 7 Chiles”…the salsa has that creamy texture of the crema, smokiness of the roasted chiles, and packs a punch of spiciness mixed with savory goodness.
I asked what their house specialty was and they eagerly said “LA TOSTADA LOCA”, which let me just warn you…bring your stretchy pants for this one. La Tostada Loca costs $8 but it can easily be a $15 tostada, describing this tostada as big is only an understatement. The tostada consists of ceviche de pescado topped with mussels, oysters, clams, squid, shrimp, scallops, cucumber, tomato, onion, lime and jugo Maggi; and to make it all nice and pretty they add a second tostada (which I believe serves as a containment wall to keep it all in place) two oysters and a mussel in their shells. What more could you want!
This is a tostada you will never forget!
The truck is parked at 3275 Beyer Blvd in the parking lot of The Beyer Liquor Store.
