If you want a wonderful and delicious fresh fish meal, stop by here. You can see fishermen bringing their trucks up to the door to drop off their catch for the day. Always fresh and delicious.

Grandma makes the finest fish taco you will ever eat. The side dishes are excellent also especially the pasta salad. Might not look like much but so good.
