    Thankfully some friends and I stumbled(literally) upon this place yesterday and it hit the spot!

    All food was served up super hot and fresh. I had the Carne Asada tacos and they were incredible. Good portion size too, I'm a bigger guy and 3 of these bad boys filled me up.

    We preferred the green salsa over the red but both had great flavor.

    Service was quick and friendly. Highly recommend seeking this place out for your taco fix.

    Less than one block away from the beach, it's the perfect place to grab a snack after the beach.

    Tacos Perla has great tacos de lengua! Although it seems they grill their meat lightly, which is different, it still tastes very good and it's one of the few places in PB where you can get lengua tacos.

    My husband had their chorizo plate which he really enjoyed good portion but definitely not over the top.

    The staff is friendly and ready to help. We will definitely be back!

    I will never forget these fish tacos...they will be in my dreams forever.

    The batter...crisp, light, and ohhhhh so flavorful!!! I could eat the fish by itself it was so delicious. I even did a side by side comparison with another place and La Perla's taco kicked its butt hands down!!!

    Being from Las Vegas, we have a lot of places to eat...but I will never forget this place when I go home (cry sob tear)...I wish I could take it with me!!

    Did I get a picture of the surf and turf burrito we had I didn't it was devoured before I could even think about it!!! You know the food is good when it puts you in a food trance of deliciousness while eating it that you forget to take pictures lol

    La Perla has THE BEST Mexican food I've ever had!!

    If you are standing in line across the are wasting your time...get your butt to La Perlas and have their tacos...YOU WILL THANK ME LATER!!!!!!

    Oh and don't forget the surf and turf burrito that is a must have!!!

    PS ... I opened the taco for the picture because I had to capture the build of it...which was perfection!!!!

    We got the King Kong burrito & a shrimp omelette plate. Both are delicious! The carne Asada is so awesome, tender & flavorful. It's a monster burrito for sure. The shrimp omelette is wonderful. It's very cheesy & loaded with tasty shrimp!

    Just steps away from the beach is a tiny spot that serves up some mean California burritos.
