Fish Taco from Tacos Atoyac

When it comes to tacos de pescado, purists who may lament their lack of flavor or abundance of breading will not be referring to Dan Maldonado's creation at his popular taqueria of street-style Oaxacan eats in North Phoenix. Eight years in the making, his may be the best in town, with lightly battered fish, a tangy guacamole salsa, and crispy lettuce atop a flour tortilla. And at $1.50 apiece, it's easy to double or triple the order.
