Wahoo’s Fish Taco

June 15, 2008

My quest for decent Tex-Mex in Hawaii made progress Friday with the discovery of Wahoo’s Fish Taco.

The shop is sports bar meets franchise meets Quiksilver, pleasant enough, a little plastic. But hot damn if the food isn’t leaps above Mi Casa Taqueria. It’s a shame you can’t eat ambience, or Mi Casa would be the winner by a mile.

I had a platter with an enchilada with red and green mole sauce and a blackened cajun fish taco, heaps of black beans and nicely seasoned rice. It had my taste buds up and doing la cucaracha, and my stomach sated.

But I hear that the real island champ for Tex-Mex is somewhere in Chinatown. I knew that’s where I should have been looking.

    Hello again,

    Strangely enough, in this country – in the middle of Central America – I can’t find good Tex Mex (or any Mex food). A little dull here. But the trade off with all the great organic veggies is a plus. This Downs’ things is a strange place to be sometimes too. Glad to you know you’re out here.
