If you ask somebody in Los Angeles where to find the best fish taco, you can pretty much count on everybody to fall into two distinct groups: those people who will tell you that Ricky’s Fish Tacos are the best, and those people who haven’t been to Ricky’s Fish Tacos yet. Originally set up in a tented parking lot on Virgil in Los Feliz, Ricky has spent the past few months in Department of Health enforced exile- serving his fish tacos out of a Chinatown parking lot on the weekends, while he worked on making his operation legal. The good news is he’s back on Virgil now in a food truck, Wednesday through Sunday from 11:30am to 4pm. The prices are a little higher ($3 per taco) and you no longer get the added charm of watching Ricky expertly man his bubbling oil filled steel drums, but it’s a small price to pay for having our 2 Hour Taco Crawl starting point back open for business in their original spot.
It seems like Ricky is committed to his original Virgil spot for lunch, but now that he has a truck there is talk of starting to travel around for dinner. This past Sunday night he was in Granada Hills from 5:30 to 8:30pm. As always, make sure to check his twitter account before heading out.
