Fresh Mexican in Eagle Rock: 7 Mares and Veggie Tacos at Señor FishMay 08 2010 · 1 comment · Eagle Rock, Restaurant Reviews, Seafood, Tacos, Vegetarian
Señor Fish gets it right. With handful of locations, they’ve carved out a necessary niche in Mexican Food. They offer the standards, but they use fresh produce and high-quality ingredients, so it’s a lot less grubby and a lot more flavorful than the average Mexican restuarant. Don’t get me wrong, I like a saucy/cheesy dish, but at some places, you order an enchilada and you swear they just put a block of jack cheese in the oven and smothered it in salsa roja.
Not so at Señor Fish. Last night was the first time I’ve ever been to their Eagle Rock location, and it might be my favorite. They have lots of outdoor seating, and the crowd was pretty fun.
Josh had a 7 Mares Soup that didn’t skimp on the seafood, the highlight being the meaty scallops. He also went with a simple cheese quesadilla, which he rightly piled high with fresh pico de gallo from their hard-to-choose-from salsa bar. I picked the veggie tacos. And they actually had real zucchini and corn in them along with cheese and guacamole. I added a drizzle of crema and smokey chipotle salsa to make them perfect.
They serve a good selection of Mexican beers, too, as well as a horchata if you’re so inclined.
