    If you do a search for fish taco, you'll find a lot of other posts as well.

    1. The closest I've found is at Rosa Mexicano. Not quite the same but delicious regardless.

      1. Bonita on Bedford Ave in Williamsburg comes pretty darn close to the real thing. Decent homemade corn tortillas, the fish nice and crispy, tons of cabbage and a limey crema. They also do that delicious grilled Mexican corn on the cob with chili/lime/butter and cotija. I think its the best Baja-style Mexican in NYC- at least the best I've tasted so far.

        1. Mercadito has some really great ones, though not as super as the ones I've had in Cali.

          1. Sadly, NYC just can't seem to "get" the Mexican fare that the Los Angelenos have. No flour tortillas--only corn!
