Happy Fish mango fish taco

As odd as it might seem, I’ve never tried a fish taco before. I don’t really like a lot of Mexican-style restaurants (though I enjoy a lot of the Mexican food I’ve tried..) which means tacos aren’t normally on my wish-list.
But.. then the food trucks came back to the MRU area when classes started this fall. Most of the trucks are the same ones that have come around before (check some of my previous posts by clicking the Food Truck tag) so I haven’t written about them again, but one of the new ones this time around is the Happy Fish truck. Specializing in… you guessed it- fish tacos!

With a menu including:

  • Tempura Prawn tacos
  • Kimchi Fries
  • Fish & Chips
  • Bulgogi Steak Taco
  • & Mango Fish tacos

I opted for the Mango Fish Taco, which was pretty good – if this is what fish tacos are usually like, I’ve been missing out!

The bottom of the taco had a bit of coleslaw (I’m not a fan, but in this it was pretty good) a piece of battered fish, and it was topped off with a mango salsa of mango (not a lot of mango flavour though) cucumber, and I think onions.  I would have really liked more mango flavour, but it was really good even without a lot of mango flavour. The tortilla was good as well – I usually find them a lot more flour-tasting than this, and I prefer this for sure…

I’ll definitely check out Happy Fish the next time it’s on the MRU campus – here’s hoping the trucks come by year-round!  The counter clerk was outgoing and friendly, and the food was good – I might even try the Kimchi Fries next time… maybe.

    You should totally try the KimChe fries and tell us how they are I don’t think I would try them though isn’t kimchee sour? That would be weird with fries.

      It might be – they haven’t been back unfortunately, so I haven’t had the chance to try them.
