The Best Fish Taco's Ever


Every plein air painter has probably had some kind of issue with food while your painting out in rural places. In the backcountry there is no food unless you bring it, in France nothing is open after 3Pm except bars (Guinness will hold you over till dinner). Some artist I know say they don't get hungry while painting. Not me, if I dont eat lunch I'll paint a "frisbee"
If you happen to be a fish taco connoisseur like me and, I think Utah artist Ryan Brown, (if you read this Ryan correct me if I'm wrong) you need to know about this hidden gem.
The best fish taco's you'll ever eat can be found at Whoa Nellie Deli in a Mobile gas station in Lee Vining CA. Lee Vining is a small town at the foot of the Eastern Sierra just outside of Yosemite. Don't let the gas station part turn you off, "this is some serious gourmet shit" and it's anything but gas station food. I stop here almost every time I paint in that area.
You get two taco's, one has a mango plum pineapple salsa and the second has a gingery sauce with lettuce. I think the ginger one used to have a wasabi sauce instead of ginger but they are still the best fish taco's I've ever had. My cellphone pic doesn't do it justice, Here are some pics of the other dish's they serve.

I'm going to be honest and just come out with it. I like Rubio's Fish Tacos. I know, I know. Wahoos fish tacos in Laguna beach never really did it for me. I love the fish tacos, but haven't had the opportunity to explore the fish taco riches, this country of ours has had to offer.
On a side note, Taco Loco in Laguna Beach makes a mean mushroom tofu burger. I loved going there when I was in art school.
God bless Guiness.
Looking forward to the show this weekend.

Hey Jeremy,
You're right. I am a bit of a fish taco connoisseur. I'll have to try these gas station fish tacos sometime. One of the things I missed the most in Florence was Wahoo's. I've got to get to California to get me some. And when I come down, we'll hook up and do some painting. The show looks awesome. I'm sure it was a huge success. The new paintings look great. You're a genius.
