Say Fish Taco Truck

So it's week 3 as a Californian, and I have yet to get food out of a truck. So tonight I went to Fresco Market in the Monterey Hills, and there they were!
I forgot it was Monday, and they have food trucks there every Monday night from 5:30 until 9:30.
I was there to buy stuff to make a salad, but that plan side tracked quickly.
Out of the 3 trucks that were there I chose the truck with the fish tacos. Only because out of the options, that's what I wanted.
I read the menu and decided to go for what seemed to be their most popular dish. It's called a "Sayulita Fish Taco" It's fish, deep fried in an old school dark beer batter, original SFT sauce, shredded cabbage, salsa, and a homemade corn tortilla.
And I got the combo, so it came with fries :)
Not as healthy as the salad I was going to make, but it was only 6pm, so it's early enough to have a little fired fish.
Anyway, let me just tell you that I wish I had ordered 5 of these tacos!
First lets talk about the sauce. It was the first thing that I tasted. I have no idea what it was. I wanna say it was mayo based, but could very well have been crema based. whatever it was, it gave me just the right amount of circle in my mouth to start eating this taco. Next to hit my tongue was the salsa. That was great too. Only a little heat, so there could be a little hot sauce added to this taco, but the salsa was good. Hoping that was homemade too.
Then the fish.... it was NOT greasy or weird like I've had on so many other fish tacos. It was light and fresh tasting, and the batter was delicious.
The cabbage added a great, and traditional crunch, but what really sealed the deal was the homemade tortilla!! Oh my gosh.. it's been a long time since I had a tortilla so perfect. It was soft, and flavorful. It didn't break apart, and wasn't super chewy either. I don't even really know how to explain it, but after the other great flavors of this taco, it just seemed perfect.

That's really all I can say about these tacos. I'm so happy that I decided to stop by the truck. I will definitely be back for more.. A lot more...

Actually there is something else I can say about the taco. And the fries for that matter. Even something to say about the way it was plated and wrapped up to go. 
It really showed that these guys give a shit about what they are doing. There was love in the food, the platting, and the way they interacted with people.
Super well done guys! See you soon!

If any of you wanna check them out, here is a link with all their info including where they are going to be parked this week. 

Lots of love,
P. -  XOXO
