Ricardo's Fish Taco stand in Silverlake

Today we were craving a good cup of coffee, so we drove to Silverlake for Intelligentsia. When we parked our car, we noticed a cart just across the street, I could only read the word Fish from where we were, so we decided to cross the street and check it out. There we found these very good and authentic fish tacos. The owner's name is Ricardo, he is from Ensenada, Baja California. He told us that he uses his Mom's recipe for these great fish tacos. His fish tacos are very good. I grew up eating fish tacos in Ensenada, I know what a fish taco should be, or at least what it was many years ago. This is the real thing! He prepares each taco to order. Everything is prepared with care, and it is very clean.
Ricardo has a full time job somewhere else, but he told me that he plans on being at this location on Saturdays & Sundays from 12 to 4pm.
I highly recommend you try Ricky's fish tacos!

Authentic Ensenada Fish Taco Cart in Silverlake,
located outside the laundromat, just across from Intelligentsia Coffee.
burnwater: You will also notice the Baja Californian accent! And yes, it is cleaner than most.
In regards to the other thread, now that I remember, Ricardo did mention that someone had complained about him not having a big selection of salsas and other condiments.
Burnwater, you might remember from your days surfing in Baja, this is what it was: tortilla, fish, mayo/cream, cabbage, and a red salsa, right?
There were no pineapple or mango gourmet salsas at the original Ensenada fish taco stands, if I remember correctly.
Hope you like them!
When I use to frequent that area there was no salsa bar.
There were no choices, you didn't need a choice what they did was perfect.
It came fully prepared to eat (con todo), fish, cabbage, crema, and red salsa.
There was this one stand we would frequent all the time and I would bring down bags of clothes for her kids and family. The tacos would keep coming until we cried uncle.
