Fish taco aficionado Joseph Cordova has opened his second restaurant. The Best Fish Taco in Ensenada, which opened last week, complements his flagship restaurant-store at 1650 Hillhurst Ave. in Los Angeles.
Hopefully, Cordova said, the Glendale store, at 604 W. Glenoaks Blvd., won’t be his last. He plans to open six more stores and four taco stands throughout Los Angeles in the coming months.
Cordova got hooked on fish tacos while visiting Ensenada. He described the taco as ugly and made out of plywood.
“But it was always packed,” Cordova said. “What I did was bring what the real, legitimate criteria for a Baja-style fish taco is: corn tortilla, shredded cabbage, salsas (of course), the fish and shrimp always breaded and fried, and cream, a Mexican cream on top.”
