Decent Fish Tacos in Boston-Finally!

elisafj Apr 1, 2010 09:45 AM

Looking for delicious fish tacos in Boston? You have (finally) found what you are looking for. Dorado's has authentic baja style fish tacos (battered) as well as the fresh fish tacos (not fried) for healthier palates. They offer good deals with rice and bean plates and even throw in a signature roast jalapeno. Yum! This is no bland Americanized Mexican food people, this is the real deal! Also, all their plates/forks/cups are biodegradable so you can toss them out, guilt free! And they even sell authentic Mexican coke bottled in Mexico. Cool!

    Why is El Pelon listed there when it's not mentioned and no longer in existence at that location?

      When you cross into Brookline do they try and sell you stuff you don't want?

          I think trufflehound was making a joke: as in border towns like Tijuana... actually, I thought it was pretty funny...

            Ah - got it, thanks. I've crossed plenty of borders in my time but never the US-Mexican one so it didn't register. Though I am always amused by the plethora of liquor stores on the Cambridge side of the (historically dry) Arlington border.

              As an Arlington resident, I am grateful to the enterprising folks right across our Cambridge, Medford, and Lexington borders (but not Winchester or Belmont - there are grateful folks there too I am certain!) - so convenient (even with our paltry wine and beer options now...)!
