Albatross: Dar la espalda
Albatross is a fish taco stand on Jalisco that turns its back on you.
Situated on the north side of Jalisco between Dominguez and Madero, taqueria Albatross is very easy to overlook unless you are trying to find it and even then it is hard to spot.
Albatross spans the sidewalk, with the dining area and cashier on the property side and the kitchen area in a laminated metal enclosure on the parkway side, so from the street all one sees is a white structure. Painted on the side eaves is the name, Albatross.
Once you find it, tell the counterman what you want and how many. Then dress em up the way you want. Plop down your plate on one of the counters and enjoy. Help yourself to complementary jalapeño poppers. Just when you have your mouth fully involved in food, someone will demand to know what to bring you to drink.
Albatross is one of Diane's favorite places for fish tacos. She says its the seasoning in the batter. I know its the poppers.
Open from 8 until 2. Jalisco near the contractors entrance to El Arco Hardware, between Dominguez and Madero

- Before gaining control of my life, I created pastries for some cool places in California: San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Brix Restaurant in Napa and The Lodge in Sonoma. Now I am the chef/owner of Pan D' Les bakery in La Paz. My personal favorite is the Multigrano loaf, full of crunchy seeds and a nice chewy crust.
