Taco Tuesday in Tucson: Shrimp & Fish Tacos at Cocteleria La Palma

Notable fresh seafood with a bit of a crunch.

“Taco Tuesday in Tucson” is a column where we explore the unique tacos stands throughout Tucson… on Tuesdays.

A food truck in the middle of the desert might not sound like the best place for seafood, but trust us here.

The seafood at Cocteleria La Palma is exceptional, and the fish and shrimp tacos are no exception. While the quality of the seafood itself is notably fresh, the batter itself is worth a mention with its light, not-too-dense crunch.
