I had the Mello Man sandwich at Fisherman's Dog the other day and holy crap the new menu there is better than Rockaway Taco.

For some, summer officially begins with Memorial Day; but for hungry, sand-seeking New Yorkers, it starts when Rockaway Taco reopens. Starting today, you can dig into the street-side plywood shack’s illustrious fish tacos ($3.50 each, add guacamole for $1). Regulars—and those who like it spicy—know to order the off-the-menu black sauce, a superhot Oaxacan salsa made with confit garlic and roasted chipotle peppers. Operated up by a merry crew of beach bums who will return to full-time surfing when the eatery closes for the season on October 5, the reggae-blasting eatery might just fool you into thinking
it’s already swimsuit weather. Don’t worry—it’s coming. (We think.)
