The search for great FISH TACOS continues...please help!
This being summer, I'm on my best-fish-taco quest. Any votes?
This past week, I have had a chance to try CAFE DE LA ESQUINA, the Mexican food outpost on Lafayette and Kenmare, as well as MERCADITO on Ave B.
They were very different. Esquina's were grilled fish with just a hint of creamy sauce and some cabbage. Mercadito's were fried with more generous with their sauce. The cabbage and sauce blended together better at Mercadito's.
I think, overall, I prefer grilled fish to fried. But Esquina was too stingy with the sauce, causing the overall effect to be blander than Mercadito's. I thought with Mercadito's tacos, I could detect different spices -- more of a concept involved.
Anyway, I'm not really into trekking all the way to 10th Ave and 47th to ltry DELLE VALLE's version. So if there are any other fish-taco options that aren't so far out, please share!
P.S. Is PAMPANO'S TACO OUTPOST worth a try? For those of you who have been there, how would they compare to the versions I described above??
HAPPY 4th of JULY TO ALL!

I had fish tacos here about six weeks ago when I was very hungry so can only say that I remember them as delicious and only disappointed by the size of the order relative to the price, around eight dollars.
