One of my favorite places to eat downtown Cincinnati is Bakersfield. It is a trendy bar that sells tacos, tortas, and has the best guacamole that I have ever had. It is fairly inexpensive and a perfect place for a nightcap (probably because they stay open until 2 am). They have very unique tacos that will satisfy the hunger of any carnivore and even vegans! They have chicken, braised short ribs, pork, portabella and roasted poblano tacos, and the list goes on. My favorite taco is the fish taco. Man, let me tell you about this taco. The fish is crispy Mahi-Mahi fish, topped with shredded cabbage, and a bunch of other stuff. It is very light and delicate and it isn’t overwhelmed with a bunch of cheese, sour cream and taco sauce like most tacos. The flavors on this taco are very harmonious with one another. You learn to appreciate the cilantro, lime juice, and the vinegar in the cabbage (which makes the taco in my opinion). I can eat them all day.
Because I love Bakersfield’s fish tacos so much, I decided to create a knock off version of their taco. Now let me say, my taco is only a temporary quick fix but should not be used as a replacement for the fish taco at Bakersfield. If you have never had Bakersfield, after you eat these tacos you are going to want to make a trip downtown or make a trip to Cincinnati, OH to try their tacos. I even made my own sauce to go with the taco. Yep! Your girl here made her very own sauce to go with the taco and it works well with all of the other flavors. It is very, very good! If you come to like my Crispy Fish Taco then you will absolutely love the tacos at Bakersfield.
