Rubio's Sesame Soy Fish Taco
There are two varieties: the "Sesame Soy" and the "Avocado Corn." The latter of those two comes with, not surprisingly, an avocado corn salsa. So I decided to get the first. (Which comes with avocado slices, but I asked to hold them.) It took several minutes for the tacos to be ready. This never bothers me - at least it makes it more likely that the tacos are being fried to order. (It's always suspicious when you order a fish taco and it's ready in 30 seconds and not too hot.)
This taco was definitely hot, a decent-sized piece of fish with a crispy batter, topped with a sesame soy sauce and a creamy wasabi sauce, along with some mixed greens.
If I really liked that crispy shrimp taco the other day, I loved this taco.
The batter was crunchy and the fish inside was juicy and flaky; the sweet soy sauce played nicely off the slightly spicy wasabi. I felt like I could have eaten a half dozen of these.
Part of me doesn't even want to go back and try another one; I feel like there is no way they all can be this good. On the other hand, if I can get another one and it's even close to being this good, it will be worth it.
