Miami's Ten Best Tacos
|Jefe's Original Fish Taco via Facebook|
Fish tacos are the thing to eat in California. Fresh fish is lightly battered, flash fried until golden brown, then served inside a tortilla with some lime and house made crema. They're the perfect protein-rich snack for surfers, skateboarders, and sun worshipers. Don't hop a jet, just get over to Jefe's taco truck and pick up a few Ensenada fish tacos ($2.35 each). Beer battered fish lie on a fresh corn tortilla, then are topped with green cabbage, pico, crema, and fresh lime. It's a taste of the west coast a little closer to home.

Where do chefs at four star restaurants go to get a nosh on their way home from a grueling shift? We were told by more than one their go-to place for authentic Mexican was Mr. Taco on Miami Beach. Giant cast iron pots are slow cooking the sauces and meats used to fill the fresh tortillas. Tacos start at $3.25 for beef, chicken, or veggie and max out at $5.50 for fresh fish and avocado. We love the al pastor ($3.50) with meat freshly sliced straight from the spit. Whatever you order, you'll enjoy authentic flavors at a reasonable price.
