Howzabout a Fish Taco Face-Off?

Determined to pit the kings of the fish taco against each other, Das Ubergeek arranged a face-off between Tacos Baja Ensenada and El Taco Nazo.

The fish in tacos from both places was a bit dry (but they’d traveled a bit to the face-off), but Tacos Baja Ensenada came out the winner. TBE’s cabbage was shredded more finely, and the crema was fresher. TBE’s fried hot peppers also have a tangier seasoning.

El Taco Nazo, though, takes the crown for shrimp tacos. Shrimp are juicy and wonderful, fried in a tempura-like batter. Salsa is good (better than the crema), but all it really needs is a hit of lime.
