Fish Taco Roundup

Start here for five favorites

1. There's more than one kind of fish taco on the menu at Mercadito Cantina. Try the red snapper-with-pineapple kind, ideally on Monday or Tuesday when the whole taco menu is all-you-can-eat for $21. more

2. Paint's not quite dry on Williamsburg's Mesa Coyoacan, but the grilled tilapia tacos are already gaining fans. more

3. Pinche Taqueria: "crisp fried fish […] tucked into a house-made tortilla and topped with cabbage, a spicy cilantro-spiked mayonnaise, and guacamole." Yes. more

4. Yes, you have to go to Corona, Queens. But the fish tacos are superior -- and it has a lot to do with the fact that Tortilleria Nixtamal is one of the only (if not THE only) joints in town to make its corn tortillas from fresh masa. more

5. La Esquina: Get the grilled market fish (this changes) from the takeout portion, piled with shredded cabbage and salsa verde. more

More fish taco reading: Grub Street squired Le Bernardin chef Eric Ripert around town, rating fish tacos from spots like La Esquina and Pinche Taqueria.
