In most cases, I am eager to try new foods. I love all variety of cuisines. But certain foods I just get stuck on, and can't bring myself to try. Fish tacos is one such thing I just couldn't bring myself to try. I love tacos-pretty much any way-beef, chicken, pork. They are just great. But fish? On a taco? Something just doesn't seem right about that combination. I either want seafood or I want tacos. But I don't want both together.
We love Fuzzy's Tacos-and the fact that there is one just down the road from our house and consistently good makes it a frequently visited restaurant. So today as we were headed to Fuzzy's I decided that it was my day. My son always gets the 2 taco plate with one shrimp taco and one fish taco. If we have taught him to venture out and try new things, then how come I can't?
I ordered my usual-the 2 taco plate with black beans and rice, but this time I only got one pork taco so I could order a fish taco. I had 2 choices of fish taco: grilled or fried (tempura). I chose the grilled. At some places I have seen fish tacos, it looked like a whole fillet of fish had been placed on the taco. At Fuzzy's, it was small pieces of fish that had been seasoned. I was pleasantly surprised by the taste-it is something I would actually order again! It's not quite good enough to be considered my new "usual", but I am glad that I now have an alternative when I am visiting any taco restaurant.
