Taco Del Mar

Taco Del Mar is located on the North side of Spokane... in the Wandermere area.  It's a sort of Baja Mexican seaside kind place that specializes in... fish tacos.

Yes, fish tacos, (supposedly all the rave beachside USA, but for me, when I first heard about them, this was quite a tastebud s-t-r-e-t-c-h.... and at that time I had never heard of such a thing before.  What is stranger is that a fish taco usually has shredded cabbage on it, (lettuce, for tacos, is the usual fare) 
Setting out for lunch this was the place of choice today and fish taco was on the menu for me.  My dining partner, Nate, went for the taco salad.

This restaurant is set up like Subway sandwich shop, All the ingredients are laid out for you and you can select them as you go.  They serve all sorts of things.. make them to your order right before you in the line, you pay and then you take your food and find a place to sit.  You can even sit outside on sunny days, as they have tables in the front.

It's a pretty big place and there was quite a lunchtime crowd.  This made me happy as I waited patiently in liine for my turn to order.  A lot of people really like this place.

Here is their menu... click it to enlarge.

I was talking to a friend who mentioned that this is where they learn how to eat a burrito... she didn't know before and had learned she had all her life been eating her burrito WRONG!  Sary.. if you ask me.  How do you eat a burrito?
