When my family and I visited Westerner Days in Red Deer last month, we enjoyed some of the fair food during our visit. One food truck that we tried was Calgary’s Happy Fish Food Truck. They apparently have been serving Fish and Chips since 2007 and originated the mango fish taco.
The Mango Fish Taco was made with grilled soft corn tortillas loaded with fresh coleslaw, craft beer battered fish, house made mango sauce and mango salsa. The dish was priced at $12 for 3 pieces. I thought the fish pieces were generous in size. The batter on the outside was nicely crispy and the fish was somewhat tender and flaky. The mango flavour wasn’t too obvious too me; it tasted more like a mango and something else mixed together.
In general, I thought the mango tacos were just OK. Nothing really to write home about and I’m not sure I would have it again. Rating: 3/5
