Best Fried Fish Tacos

Cholita Linda

The Bay Area’s taquerias offer many great grilled-fish taco dishes, but it can be surprisingly challenging to find a well-crafted fried-fish taco. Fortunately for Oakland, the chefs behind Cholita Linda, which started as a mobile food vendor, opened up a brick-and-mortar shop last spring in Temescal, where they now serve up their brilliant Baja fish tacos that fans previously could only find at farmers’ markets and festivals. The taco features a batter-fried tilapia with a perfect crunch. But what makes the crispy fried fish so delicious are the ingredients that surround it — a salsa roja, a white Baja sauce, cabbage slaw, and lime juice, all wrapped in corn tortillas that are delivered fresh to the store each day. Two of the Baja fish tacos make a very satisfying meal, and at $3.50 per taco, there’s no better deal in the neighborhood.
