Día de Pesca has the best fish tacos that kimchee has had in the last four years in the Bay Area.

It’s a quirky little joint—basically a taco truck in a parking lot, but nicer. It’s got cloth awnings, concrete patio tables covered in mosaics, and umbrella-covered benches. You order at a little table set up outside the truck, and then they run your order to the truck and fry you up some serious fish taco excellence.

There are major choices here. You can pick from tilapia, snapper, salmon, halibut, tuna, shrimp, scallops, or crab. It’s a ridiculous variety, says kimchee. And each kind kimchee has tried has been cooked to perfection: “soft & flaky, seasoned well, and a little chargrilled-in goodness.” The tacos are served on pairs of fluffy corn tortillas, with cabbage, pico de gallo, and generous amounts of creamy avocado and chipotle sauce.

Also look for seafood quesadillas. The other patrons seem to dig ’em.

Open daily 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
