Best Fish Taco in Ensenada in Los Feliz
Yes, that's the name of the place -- Best Fish Taco in Ensenada, a bit of a mouthful. They just have two items -- fish tacos ($1.50), and shrimp tacos ($2.00). Pretty tasty little critters with a variety of salsas and relishes.
Munchy, Mr. Munchy, and the Munchkin were there in full force tonight. Tasty shrimp and fish tacos, made fresh. Proprietor insists you eat them right then and there. Innovative salsas that pair nicely with the tacos.
Sounds like they officially open in 3 weeks. Til then, variable hours.

I'm happy this place is in the neighborhood (Hillhurst south of Prospect). It's an easy snack or a light meal- I've stopped in and had the shrimp and the fish - they give you the fish on the tortilla and you dress it yourself. Condiment bar includes cabbage, creme, salsas, (I like the hot mango salsa), a thin quacamole maybe?, pickled radish and carrots... Quick, cheap, tasty. Bizarre atmosphere though.
Very tasty. I thought it was kinda "bizarre" too and here's why:
1. It's set up like a fast food place so you order at the register, fully expecting to pay up front. But then the nice lady says you pay later and she asks which one you want first (I ordered two fish and two shrimp). Then she gives you one taco at a time.
2. I am not adept at describing interiors and this one has me even more bafffled. I know they're not quite set up yet (I was there last week Thursday).
The bonus was when I went to pay, she asked me if this was my first time and if so, one taco is free! (please don't abuse it)
So tasty, almost as good as the street cart fish taco I had in Ensenada but this will have to do. The next day however, I had the same Montezuma's revenge as I did from Ensenada.
Stopped by today. Though I admit that I am a recent east coast transplant with limited fish taco experience, this was by far the best I've had in my short adventures. The fish is hot, they give you one taco at a time. The condiments are good and the prices are low. I think that it beats Siete Mares, the other neighborhood option, six ways to Sunday. I'll agree that it's a little strange for a taco stand, but everyone was very friendly.
Please confirm that the address I have (1650 N. Hillhurst Ave.) is near Hollywood Blvd. and the MTA Vermont/Sunset station. Google doesn't like that address :-(.
Another great excuse to visit my favorite Jon's Marketplace!
