Aguachiles El Tamarindo

The colorful Sinaloan truck in East Oakland has a long menu of aguachiles, ceviches, and seafood towers piled high with shrimp, fish, crab, and other mariscos. They also have excellent birria tacos, which you can enjoy in their spacious seating area. Incredible corn tortillas and a perfectly balanced cheese-to-birria ratio make El Tamarindo’s tacos some of my favorites. They’re $4 dollars each (they’re on the smaller side so order three), and you’ll have to walk-up to order. And heads up, you can only pay with cash or Venmo.
