Top 3: Fish Tacos

Cinco de Mayo (which is Spanish for the “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on the date in US and Mexico. The holiday itself is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla, which in English translates to ‘The Day of the Battle of Puebla. Cinco de Mayo is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on the date in 1862 and serves as a source of pride and way to honour the culture.

Although this date holds great historical and cultural significance, it is also a great opportunity to embrace Mexican culture with some great Mexican food. I know this isn’t authentic Mexican but, lately I have been on a kick of fish tacos so I will seize this opportunity to list for you my Top 3 Places for Fish Tacos.

Top 3 Places for Fish Tacos

1. Aqua

Aqua offers a relaxed atmosphere with upscale cuisine – and a mean fish taco! Pictured are Corona Batter Fish Tacos with Avocado Cream and Pico de Gallo. $14 for 3. Check out their Facebook here.


2. Magnum & Steins

If you’ve read my review on Magnum & Steins, you know how much I loved their version of the fish taco. Served on a Grilled Flour Tortilla, the Crispy Fried Cod was layered with Shaved Cabbage, Pico de Gallo and drizzled with Chipotle Lime Crema. $8 each. Check out their Facebook here.

I have yet to try these myself but due to the raving reviews I have heard about them, I had to include them on the list! Savvy is serving up unique and innovative versions of the classic taco, including this one with Blackened Tilapia, Mango Puree and Cucumber-Lime-Radish Salad. $4 each. Check out their Facebook here.

    She’s right. Their fish tacos are amazing. Sometimes they change them up instead of just the regular cod they use fresh halibut! They have cilantro slaw, chipotle mayo and delicious pickled red onions (which I hadn’t realized I liked but love!). Plus it comes with a side of vegetarian chili on top of white rice which is also really tasty.

        I love everything there. Their Jack Daniels burger is AMAZING!!! And definitely spend the extra buck or two to make your fries into Parmesan fries. TO. DIE. FOR.
