Taqueria Pico de Gallo
2618 S. Sixth Ave., 623-8775
Drive south on Sixth Avenue, and the bright-yellow-and-purple former taco stand--now a cozy maze of rooms--screams out. The pico de gallo--a tropical fruit lover's dream where the ripest of fruit spears collide with a generous sprinkling of red chile powder, creating a wild tango in your mouth--is so good that sometimes, they run out. Then there's the lightly battered fish tacos on slightly charred tortillas topped with crisp slaw. But the pièce de résistance: pickled carrots and red onions washed down with horchata.
