German taco is a new one on me, although after reading the
description it's not as exotic as it first sounded, although with a
flour tortilla and heated as above I'd call it a German burrito.  In
my lexicon, "taco" entails corn tortilla(s), although there can be
one or two (the latter is standard if the filling is sauced) and they
can be hard or soft.

As for fish tacos, they've been big in southern CA for years.  They
sell them at San Diego Padres games.  (And I had a good one at an
outdoor stand near the LSA/ADS hotel last time we met in L.A.)
