Is it time for a fish taco throwdown?

I want to take a couple of minutes to talk about this fairly new, at least to me, phenomenon, the fish taco. Now I’m a big fan of the taco, but I always thought of them as good when they were shoved full of meat. Not so fast, amigo. There are a lot of places offering up fish tacos these days, but I think I might have found the best. A new restaurant called Casa Bonita has opened up in Norristown. I tried their fish tacos, and not only was it a meal fit for a king, but they were absolutely excellent. A lot of places you go to serve up fairly dry fish tacos, but Casa Bonita adds a sauce across the top of theirs that not only takes the dryness away, but adds a kick that makes the dish. So, I’m throwing down a challenge to anyone out there reading this who thinks they know where the best fish taco can be found. My phone number, email address and Twitter handle are all below. Let me hear from you. And I wouldn’t be too surprised if I hear from some new place in East Norriton. You know, the new restaurant capital of Montgomery County.
