Poco A Poco is in Hyde Park square. This is a place I don't get to go for a few reasons. I find it hard to find parking at any time. Many times that I've been there the drivers seem to be rude. That being said, for me to go out on my day off to find a place in Hyde Park square. Well, its gotta be good.
I was basically just aimlessly driving around trying to find somewhere for lunch and was miraculously able to find a parking spot near Poco a Poco.
The host was able to seat me immediately - I guess I missed the lunch rush. 1pm is a bit late for a lunch I guess.
I had their iced tea which is flavored with something very subtle and somehow I forgot to ask what.
Chips and salsa were offered to me and I took them! The chips were good, the salsa was a bit disappointing. The first part of it was really bland. When I got to the bottom of the bowl it got spicier. I can hardly think this was intentional. Maybe just a mixture of 2 batches perhaps? Anyways - you're not missing anything with the salsa.
I had the fish tacos. These were really tasty. I like to make fish tacos myself and my fish is a shredded mixture of fish and marinade. This was a chunk of seasoned fish. There was a little "slaw" and a nice spiced lime aioli with corn. The only thing I would prefer would be corn tortilla. Sometimes a flour tortilla doesn't taste like anything except flour. WHITE flour. The aioli and corn made these a little soggy so maybe corn wouldn't hold up so well. The flavor was really delicious though.
I wish they had their ceviche on the menu for lunch I was really wanting to try that. I guess I'll have to brave Hyde Park Square at night to get my ceviche on.
