Fish Tacos

Fishin’ Tacos in the D


When you think about tacos you normally think of the warm shell, fresh ingredients, flavorful sauce, and freshly cooked beef. While most of those components can be found on almost all tacos, you can switch things up by substituting beef with chicken, pork, or fish. That last choice brings a unique taste to the Mexican meal and numerous Metro Detroit restaurants offer tasty takes on the fish taco. So get ready for a seafood spin on tacos at these local restaurants.

Terry’s Terrace

A Harrison Township favorite for more than 80 years, Terry’s Terrace is known for their seafood, beer selection, and vintage arcade machines. A favorite off their menu are the Baja fish tacos made with soft shells packed with hand cut beer battered Atlantic cod, cabbage, fresh pico de gallo, and San Diego spicy sauce. If you’re looking for other fish dinners, their craft beer battered fish and chips is a popular choice.

Carnival Market

Carnival Market in Pontiac has 10 aisles of fresh meat and produce, along with a full service Mexican restaurant. Their California fish tacos are made with fresh tilapia and a fresh tortilla along with cabbage, pico de gallo, and their homemade white salsa. We’d suggest pairing it with their carne asada fries made with cheese, guacamole, sour cream, and hot sauce – but maybe ask someone to help you finish it!
