Fish taco at Central Market

Leslie Brenner | Mar 22, 2002 12:58 AM

I found myself in Grand Central Market downtown yesterday, and wandered around wondering what the single best thing to eat there would be. I wasn't hungry, just curious. After a few turns around the stalls, I plunked down at the counter at Maria's Fresh Seafood and ordered a fish taco. Woof! What a taco! It may have been the best fish taco I've ever had--a pefect taco-gestalt of delicious fresh fried fish, shredded romaine lettuce, exactly the right amount of cilantro, really ripe tomato, a little onion, and some, I don't know, something like sour cream. Crema fresca? Everything in absolutely perfect proportion. All for $1.50. I love L.A.

No doubt this has been discussed before, but what else is good at Grand Central Market? Has anyone ever bought fish from the monger along the wall on the north side? He had some intriguing looking baby octopuses, but I wasn't going right home, so didn't dare...
