I tried a lot of fish tacos all over NYC. My choice: Rockaway Taco. Rockaway Taco makes one awesome fish taco. The fish they use appears to be tilapia: it is nice and white and flaky. The outside of the fish is crispy, almost tempura like. The tortilla is not soggy at all, and is hot, grilled and delicious. There is red cabbage on the taco, which give it a nice freshness and a good crunch. I recommend the delicious, flavorful guacamole as an added topping: it really adds zest and texture. All I can say is that is all the flavors combined make up an outstanding, not-to-be missed fish taco.
