Baja cuisine isn't very complex or varied. Simple food served quickly would best describe the staples served at both roadside stands and "fine" restaurants. Certainly no dish is more popular in the Ensenada area than tacos de pescado, usually made with fried halibut. Viva Mexico Taqueria, located next to the popular Hussong's Cantina, serves us the fish tacos pronto, making for an inexpensive and greasy meal. They don't taste particularly good or bad, just oily. But when in Rome... Such was our experience with the supposedly "heavenly" tacos de pescado. For some refreshment afterwards we visited the neighboring ice cream parlor, which had an enormous number of flavors from which to choose.
