More on Fish Tacos & Chile Colorado

Calvin Trillin claims, in an article he wrote for Gourmet, which I can't find at the moment, that the best fish tacos he had were in Ensenada and Los Angeles, respectively. He was underwhelmed by the San Diego version. I can vouch for the goodness of the Ensenada taco, but LA....hmm.

There was a really excellent fish taco article in Saveur a couple years back.

Finally, last night, on "Food Nation," the startlingly Michael Rapaport-like Bobby Flay was somewhere in Texas, where a local chef cooked him an upscale version of Chile Colorado--instead of chunks of beef or pork simmered in the sauce, he made the sauce separately and then dressed filet mignons with it. He used no tomatoes.
