    ^Did you use PowerPro braided line to stitch it?

    Both kinds of fish tacos are just fabulous.

    I thought the fish tacos capital of the USA was in and around the fish markets of Ensenada? That's where I've had the best...

    I said the U.S.A. not Mexico. But you hit on the key to why San Diego is the fish taco Capitol of the U.S.A.
    The fresh fisheries in Ensenada and the rich in tradition fish taco recipes started there. Ensenada is only an hour and a half 85 miles from San Diego. All the Southern California surfers for decades have made the trip down from San Diego to all the famous surf breaks between San Diego and Ensenada. One of those surfers took the famous Mexican fish taco recipes and brought it back to the states. He opened up his first fish taco
    shop in San Diego in 1983'. He named it Rubios. I first ate at the original one in 87'. It has since became a large chain.

    The rest is history fish tacos over the years have
    spread throughout the country. But nothing beats
    how Rubios makes them. Unless you go down to
    Mexico. I've done many Mexico trips driving from
    San Diego to Ensenada, Rosarito, Port of Neuevo.
    All killer fish tacos and fresh Lobster carne asada
    and Margaritas. YUM!

    Ah-haaaa! You figured it out. That's why I posted the BAJA California thing because I knew the roots of San Diego's greatness came from there.

    Unfortunately those that haven't experienced it think we're just blowing hot air.

    True, but I have to think that lots of members here may not have ever even had a fish taco, much less been to San Diego.

    Best ones I've had were from some coastal Mexico trips.

    Then, making our own. Not all gussied up. A little cabbage, maybe some pico, sometimes a little lime.

    20+ years ago we used to drive south to surf Roserita. The waves were great, there was NO one to compete with for waves, and the fish tacos were to die for.

    There is not a snowballs chance in hell i would risk a drive into Baja these days.

    Yep same here as I mentioned earlier we made many trips in to Rosarito and Port of Neuevo. Two
    coastal towns in between San Diego and Ensenada.
    Sounds like you and I were hitting it up around the
    same time. All goodies and all fresh caught fiish
    tacos, Lobster, carne asada and margaritas or cervesa [beer]. And everything costs next to nothing. Those two small coastal surf / sea food towns were full of American tourists back then. Mainly young twenty something crowd just down there to party and eat the amazing food.

    We are lucky to have experienced those care free times down there. As you said going down there these day's your risking your life. My brother still makes a annual yearly trip down to the Sea of Cortez to go wind surfing. He' s been doing it for 15 years. He seems to think if you travel in a group and stay to yourselves you'll be fine. I've argued with him every year but he keeps going. Scary place for Americans these days.
