What a mistake it was that I stopped into La Salsa for a quick and much needed boost to my low blood sugar. I had to eat fast and this was right where I was. I didn’t want a Subway sandwich, or anything big like a meal. I just wanted something light, so there I was with my fish tacos. At least they used corn tortillas. The fish was tasteless — and I don’t mean season-less, I mean the fish had no umami but lots of fishiness. And who the hell puts cheese on fish tacos? That’s a gringo-fied taco! I eat fish tacos at a lot of places and this is the first time I’ve had shredded cheese in a fish taco. WEIRD!! I won’t be back even if I’m keeling over from hypoglycemia!
