Essex Taqueria - new on (you guessed it) Essex

Remember that Doner place that lasted about 4 minutes at 123 Essex? Well, now it's a taqueria. I grabbed a grilled fish taco ($3.50) while waiting for the bus. A generous portion of flaky white fish on two corn tortillas, with many toppings to choose from; I went with salsa, white cheese and radishes. You could also add corn, fresh jalapenos, guacamole, cilantro...there were a lot of options. Besides fish, the place offers the usual fillings. The only one I don't remember seeing before was something called suadero, or rose meat, which the internet informs me is "a thin cut of beef from the intermediate part of the cow between the belly and the leg." Anyway, nice little place, and very conveniently located for both late night Hell Square drunks and M14A riders.
