Time Out says

This no-frills family-run food stall in South L.A. offering one of L.A.’s best Mexican seafood experiences—and all at a fairly reasonable price. Housed inside food hall Mercado La Paloma, Gilberto Cetina Jr.’s Yucatecan-style mariscos counter is a profound revelation for those who enjoy spice, citrus and smoke. The approachable deep-fried fish tacos and well-made coctel mixto, of course, bring in the daytime crowds, but more upmarket dishes like the smoked kampachi tostadas and freshly shucked oysters more than hold their ground against other seafood heavyweights. When it comes to tacos (around $6), the menu changes often and you’re just as likely to find scallops spilling from corn tortillas as you are uni, crispy octopus or kanpachi.
