Miami Fish Tacos

I know most are found in San Diego, but are there any hotspots for fish tacos in Miami?

    San loco and Lime have them, but we are not huge fans of either. our favorites are at zona fresca in ft lauderdale

        I shudder at the thought of Baja Fresh being a go to place! Those tacos are on the bad side of mediocre.

        I've had some good fish tacos at Zona Fresca in Fort Lauderdale. A distant second, the fish tacos at Lime (I've been to the one in North Miami Beach) aren't half bad either.

          i find most of the food at baja fresh on the bland side. i like the fish tacos at Lime, but really like the ones at Zona Fresca better, cheaper too.

          there was an article in the Miami Herald this past thursday on a new place, Ver-Daddy's Taco Shop. Anybody try it yet?

            Yes. See this post:

              I saw fish tacos (with pickled onions) on the menu at the newly opened Quesadilla Grill in downtown Hollywood. I haven't tried it yet, but it might be worth checking out if you're in the area. It's on 20th between Harrison and Hollywood.

            Surf Road Taco in Hallandale Beach! 101 NE 3rd St. Lightly battered or grilled fresh mahi mahi with a cilantro lime cram sauce as good as you'd find in SoCal.

              Sandbar in the Grove has good fish tacos. Mondays are taco day and they are pretty cheap.

                Yea, and if you go on "White Trash Night" beers are only $2.

              Anyone tried Quarterdeck's? I was tempted the other night and after their disappointing Kobe Sliders was thinking I should've? BTW, their Lobster Bisque with Crawdad meat ain't half bad!

                Thats what you get for ordering "kobe" at the Quarterdeck... I had their salmon burger one time and it wasnt half bad. That and the $1 beers are pretty kickass.

                  They "sounded" good...playoff football, beer and Kobe Sliders seemed like a good idea at the time.

                  Seems our diatribes have been circumcized! Oh well...se la vi.

                  ISO a good Fish Taco...authentic not required.

                Do any of the Peruvian places do them? Or is it only a Mexican thing?

                  I've never seen them at the Peruvian places I've been to. Used to hear about them a lot when I lived on the west coast. It seems the surfers used to love them in San Diego and Baja if I recall. Quite honestly, I've never seen them served at the taquerias that I have frequented. My places are more the gorditas/carne asada types.
