It wasn't until I moved to Houston that I learned of this delicious dish: the Fish Taco. Having lived all over Texas, tacos were either soft or crunchy had ground meat or chicken... and if you were a high roller, you'd get the fajita meat. Mmmm. Back in the day, the best taco's ever were the ones from the Cabana down by the UT campus. We'd scrounge up all kinds of loose change at 2am to go grab one. Later as our budgets got bigger, we drove further... to Kirbey Lane for thier chicken soft tacos for $2.
And now... right here, right down the street, for right around $9... I have found the most delicious tacos of all, the Mahi Mahi fish taco at the Hobbit Cafe. As pictured above, they come packed with mahi mahi goodness, special sauce, that purple cabbage veggie thing, and a mango salsa. Are you drooling yet?!
They're open late, but don't push it. They get incredi-cranky about an hour before closing.
