The gorda taco at the Taco Fish food trailer is as portly as its name implies. It comes soundly stacked with mounds of fish, yellow peppers and a fat deep-fried shrimp balanced up top. There are a half-dozen hot sauces to heat it up, coleslaw to cool it down, and a squeeze bottle of avocado cream sauce to just spoil yourself with.

Taco Fish stakes out a barren concrete plot on West Grant Road, just west of Sixth Avenue. It’s a tiny little outfit that is actually quite hard to miss, thanks to two “Fish Tacos” banners flapping away out front.

When eating at a small food operation like Taco Fish, it is nice to do several things. First, stuff a few singles in the Styrofoam tip cup. You know they deserve it. Second, marvel at how food with such flavor and substance can be prepared in a space so absurdly small.

Also, don’t be shy on the pico de gallo and the rest of the condiment bar. The fish is battered and fried properly on the fish tacos, but what sets off the flavors is the balance of the onions, limes and other accoutrements of the condiment line. And don’t forget about that avocado sauce. Seriously.

If you like fish tacos, you should go to Taco Fish. And if you don’t like fish tacos? Well, if anything can cure you, Taco Fish can.
