Fish Torta

JeetJet | Mar 21, 2013 10:37 AM

By way of background, I use to write post everyday but then I stopped eating meat, and well... But sometimes I find a place that is really worth a mention and that is why I am back today.

Bread is the foundation of any sandwich and this Torta has perfect thin & fresh Torta bread. The thin spread of refried beans is home made quality; real-deal like Nana use to make. In fact, the owner is so proud of these beans she brought us a small plate of them with some chips just so we could try it. The beans are excellent, chips could be better. The fish is fresh and is very lightly battered & cooked to order. In fact, I almost do not want to use the word batter because it is so thin. I have eaten at this little place at least 6 times over the last two months and everything is always consistent; am always happy when I leave. Bottom line, best fish Torta I have ever had and I eat lots of fish tacos; Tacos Baja in East L.A., Mariscos La Bucana in El Monte --the best fish taco in L.A. Co., but Roccos makes the best Fish Torta!

The fish and shrimp tacos at Roccos are also good. The salsa bar stands out and far above many because each salsa is special. There is a hot green salsa that is simply outstanding. The salsa alone is worth a trip.
