Whenever I’m in Los Angeles, a visit to Ricky’s Fish Tacos for some Baja style fish and shrimp tacos is a must. I first discovered Ricky’s back in 2009 before he even had his food truck. He used to set up shop in a humble parking lot in the Silverlake area and there’d be a guaranteed line every visit.
There’s limited seating on the colorful, plastic furniture, but on warm days, which L.A. certainly is blessed to have a lot of, you can bring a towel or blanket and have an Ensenada style picnic on the neighboring grass.
Not only are his tacos mouthwatering delicious, but they are also a great bargain. He also has fresh aqua frescas available and on my last visit, I tried the sweet and tangy hibiscus flavor.
