June 18, 2014 ~ Providence, RI
When I was in California, I had an amazing fish taco. We were visiting my sister and she took us to this little casual place. This was their specialty. Really? Fish in a taco? Who knew! Let me tell you, it was outrageously good! So this summer in my quest to find the perfect East Coast fish taco, I shopped around. Mind you, they are not easy to find. Not like a lobster roll or even a lobster BLT. I conquered my quest at the perfectly relaxing AQUA located in the Providence Marriott Downtown. AQUA’s Fish Tacos are new this season. It’s something they want to become famous for serving. I think they’re on the right track. Available Thursday – Sunday, AQUA’s grilling station cranks out tons of the best fish tacos around. Not just fish ones either. They offer beef and pulled pork too. $13 gets you three and you can watch the chef grill and then assemble your fish taco right before your eyes. AQUA”s fish tacos pair nicely with their signature Margaritas! California you’re getting a run for your money! Insider’s tip: Found out that AQUA will be offering Salsa Dance lessons every Thursday in July and August. $5.95 Margaritas and some fish tacos and you have a girls’ night out to remember! www.aquaprovidence.com
