Señor Baja, formerly El Taco Nazo, is a fish taco house off the main drag of Foothill Blvd. in Pomona. Taco frontiersman Snr. E. Nord took me here 10 years ago. Across the street where a chain restaurant now stands I remember a long panoramic mural of the Mojave desert spiked with century plants. Now another ode to the wrecking ball. This is Route 66, a bustling strip of Foothill Blvd. streaked with vintage signage, crumbling spreads of weeds and concrete, and true dives like the Hi-Brow- take your chances!

Yes- pictures that speak. Looking at these tacos you can almost count your bites. Two fish tacos on tiny hand sized tortillas. The white fish is frito into crunchy, golden briquettes, hot from the kitchen. Fish rest in piece on a bed of diced cabbage, cilantro y cebolla. See the cream sauce, served like desert. The cream sauce doesn't drip. It percolates into the crunchy cabbage slaw and unites the taco. Lemon and Tapatio decorate the flavor and bring out the tang taste of this mysterious special sauce. I count three bites to devour one fish taco.
