Taqueria De Amigos

fish-taco-pescadero

 

If you ever find yourself driving along old Stage Road on the San Mateo coast, just off highway 101, your bound to pass by the quaint little town of Pescadero. Given its name it should really come as no surprise that this would be home to some of the best fish tacos in California.

Mysteriously, Taqueria De Amigos lives within the confines of a gas-station-mini-mart. Don’t ask your phone or car to gt you there, just drive naively into town, lean out of the car window, and ask anyone you see on the street (no not that guy, the other guy) for directions to “the taco place”. They’ll know exactly what you mean.

Upon arrival you may want to send a friend to go snag one of the four little tables by the salsa bar that’s brimming with taco-toppings: pickled radishes, carrots, and peppers, fresh multi-colored salsas, and, of course, those warm crispy chips. At about four bucks for a pair, these succulent soft fish tacos will transform that little mini-mart into a pescatarian (and pescaderian) paradise.
