Fish taco
aficionados—and California has legion—love to debate the finer points of what goes into the perfect
version of their favorite street snack. Deep-fried or grilled fish fillet?
Salsa or white sauce? The addition of guacamole: tantamount to heresy? There
is, however, one area of consensus: some of the finest fish tacos come from
this humble shop-window on North Coast Highway in Encinitas. The tacos at
Juanita’s will keep purists happy—they conform to the version first introduced
to Baja in the 1970s. Battered and deep-fried fish, shredded lettuce, salsa
fresca, and lime, all in sight of the beach and under two bucks. Gnarly.
