Ricky's Fish Tacos, Los Angeles, CA

Ricky's Fish Tacos Restaurant Review

: Baja native Ricky Piña uses a family recipe handed down by his grandmother, dipping fresh hunks of fish in a creamy spiced batter and then frying them to golden, light and crispy. They’re popped onto a warm griddled tortilla and topped with cabbage and fresh salsa. Enhance it with additional homemade salsas, and then cool down with a refreshing jamaica agua fresca or cinnamon-laced horchata. Shrimp tacos are also good, but we prefer the fish. It’s a good idea to check Piña’s Twitter for opening and closing times, as he sometimes sells out early.
