Fish Company Taco
Chef Daya Myers-Hurt has such a gift! She opened this tiny restaurant on 23rd St. that used to be my secret. Daya's motto is "Chef Driven. Farm Loving. Gulf to Table." She literally gets the fish from the dock, cleans and filets it, and works her magic with the fish and sauces she serves guests. Word got out about my spot and now you have to arrive by 1pm before she is sold out. We knew this, because twice before we set out for lunch there only to see the sign on the door 'sold out'. We left early today and made the short walk to Fish Company Taco. Jeff had not tried it before and was tired of hearing me rave about it, so he ordered one of every taco on the menu, of which there are five. Heidi and I sat at a bistro table in front of the restaurant while he placed our order at the counter. He came out with teas and our food was quickly delivered by a very nice gentleman with the most beautiful blue eyes ever. Anyway, I asked for a Korean taco and a Vietnamese taco, but when he brought one of everything I wanted them all!! The fish, slightly breaded, and every so delicately fried, was absolutely perfect on each taco, as always. Chef Daya's sauces are to die for!!! I now have a new favorite - the Empire taco with a hunan bbq sauce, fresh cilantro, and sliced green onion. So simple but so complex tasting. The Dirty South taco is topped with Chef's family homemade pimento cheese. What a treat! We devoured every bite, although I did manage to part ways with two tiny bites of fish for Heidi. As we sat eating, a sign was posted on the door 'sold out'; it was barely after 1pm.
