Dorado Fish Tacos.. the best!

We tried Dorado's (Brookline) Fish and Shrimp tacos yesterday, and they are pretty awesome... among the best I've had in Boston!

They have two kinds of fried fish tacos, both are similar but very good. And they have a grilled fish (which was salmon yesterday, but changes), and a fried shrimp taco. These two really stood out!

We didn't try anything else on their menu, so can't say much about the other meats. Have any of you tried Dorado? Can't wait to go back there!

  1. Mmm delicious. Their street corn is great, as is their brunch. I've had all the tacos at one point - the fried fish special is my favorite!

    The drinks are great too. I really enjoy the hibiscus.

    1. Love Dorado; just hit it this past weekend for lunch. I generally go for the Dorado taco or Enseneda and then whatever the special fish is. This weekend it was a nice piece of seared salmon, great crust on it. The veggie tacos are fine but nothing special imo and seem to pale in comparison to the fried fish tacos.

      Love the Hibiscus tea and the fact that the two of us can get two taco plates and drinks and be out for $16.

      I keep hearing the Cemitas are good but I can't pull myself away from the fish tacos.

      1. My favorite tacos. I love the steak taco, which is just the perfect amount of spicey, and the pork milanese cemitas is one of the best sandwiches in Boston, sooooooo tastey.

        1. re: devilham

          + 1 for the Pork Milanese Cemita.

          On another note, I had a pretty solid fish taco the other day at Pedro's on Bromfield Street in Downtown Crossing. They are a small chain (maybe 4-5 locations) from Southern California. There was a thread a few months back.

        2. With the caveat that I *still* have never gotten over to that place on Bromfield Street that has the San Diego pedigree, I think Dorado easily has the best fish tacos in town. Far superior to La Verdad and El Pelon.

          The cemitas are okay, but I'd rather have the tacos 9 times out of 10.

          1. The fried fish tacos - ensanada and dorado - are consistently awesome and hard to shy away from. But if you're ever in the mood to try something different, go for a grilled fish taco. They do a swordfish half the year and bluefish the other half. Usually they mix it up with a special, like one with some asian flavors: sambal, etc. I also dig the elote in the summer. Ah, this is making me hungry.
