It's only a small exaggeration to say that when Ricky Piña tweeted that he was temporarily shutting down his Los Feliz fish taco stand, a good segment of the Twitterverse nearly had a meltdown. Ricky’s fish tacos ($2.75)— beautifully battered slabs of basa (a catfish), gently fried and topped with strips of cabbage, crema and salsa—are not just the best Ensenada-style fish tacos in Los Angeles, but arguably one of the best tacos this side of the border, period. It was an enormous relief, then, when Ricky began popping back up at various locations around town. Frying up his fish and shrimp tacos in parking lots (and tweeting his locations along the way), it’s business as usual.

Started going to Ricky's Fish Tacos when they were on Virgil. Waited anxiously after their brief shutdown. We've been frequenting his new permanent China Town location (1100 N. Main). Check him out on Twitter for hours. His normal hours are Saturday/Sunday 11:30am - 4:30pm. Great, great, great!!! ~~~ By the way, save room after his fish tacos and drop by CHIMNEY COFFEE in the same center. Try their great Brick Toasts and delicious coffees and teas. One of the better coffee houses in Los Angeles.
