Fish Taco Update: Ricky’s Fish Tacos in Los Angeles

The other week I wrote about my favorite fish tacos in the Twin Cities. I explained that my love of fish tacos developed while living out in Southern California. When I visited Los Angeles last week, I made sure to stop by Ricky’s Fish Taco. Ricky has undoubtedly the best fish tacos this side of the U.S.-Mexican border.  He sells his delicacies from a pop-tent in a Chinatown parking lot, only adding to the appeal of his already perfect tacos (and is an excellent example of Los Angeles’s multicultural abundance).  Most recently, The Daily Meal rated Ricky’s tacos the best in America.  I am inclined to agree.  Just look at the creation below.  A crispy flavorful piece of battered fish, so overflowing with toppings it is nearly impossible to find the tortilla underneath.
