Meanwhile, Out in Rockaway

Rockaway Fish Taco
One of the best parts of working at Robicelli's last year was becoming friends with Rachel from Nachos NY and Monique from Eatinist Bitch. Since I can still make my own schedule (for the moment), the three of us have been spending many week days hanging out in Rockaway while most people are stuck in their freezing offices.

Rippers
This has meant finally trying two of the famous dishes from Rockaway Taco. One is their fish taco--I did have a taste of it at last year's Food Film Festival and it's definitely *the* best fish taco in the city. Yes, there's a battered and fried fillet underneath all that slaw and radishes. I also finally got to taste their chilaquiles--those are only available until 11am, Thursday-Sunday. And totally worth the extra early morning haul out to Rockaway. Plus, early arrivals means less lines for beers at Rippers. And you all know that the real reason why Rockaway's become the place to be.
