Even though it still hadn't been a week since my moronic taco bender in Salem, fish tacos still sounded great to me. And even though this cart is more than a taco truck, I find tacos to be that awesome, portable item that street food should be (even when there's multiple benches to sit at in this lot).
|Seared Ahi Tacos|
Excellent quality and cut of tuna. It was a vibrant, shiny magenta color, with no white "stringy" parts to it. A paper-thin sear to the tuna's exterior. Being a huge protein lover, I'd honestly like a few more slices in there, or at least have an option to get a "double" portion of fish in the tacos for a couple bucks more (something like that).
There are salmon tacos ($9 for three), an ahi tuna melt ($7), and a tasty-sounding wild salmon satay ($9). New England-style Clam chowder is sold on Fridays and Saturdays. And if you don't like fish, Dustin and Angie even have a chicken and sausage gumbo that they offer all the time.
For now, Fishbox's hours are Wed-Sun from noon to dark (probably somewhere around 8-9 p.m.). I love delicious, refreshing, healthy tacos, and Fishbox really came through for me. Head on over and try them out! 8.75/10
