Fish Tacos Times Two

Posted By on Fri, Dec 22, 2006 at 3:47 PM

In the never-ending hunt for fish tacos, I had two different plates yesterday. The first was at Barrio, at JB's recommendation. The fish of the day was salmon and they were loaded with black beans, guacamole and the standard fixins inside a soft flour tortilla. Very good, especially with the mango salsa that came on the side, but I think both Pastiche and El Charro are better.

For dinner, I tried the fish tacos at Bluepoint at La Encantada, after having a drink at the swank bar at North. Although the menu calls them "crispy fish tacos," the three tacos were wrapped in a soft flour tortilla. The crispy part was evidently the fish, which was lightly breaded and, while not especially crispy, still terrific. The tacos came with cabbage and guac, as well as a smoky salsa on the side. The plate included black beans and white rice. They were also mighty tasty, tho they still trail behind the top two. The best part of the meal was the ahi tuna salad we started with.

Still looking for recommendations for more places to try.
