Specialty Dishes: Fish Taco

Old-school Austinites will remember when Tamale House was on Airport Boulevard serving the absolute cheapest tacos in town. When the owner died in 2012, her grandchildren shifted the business to East Sixth Street, onto a piece of property owned by the family since long before the street's recent boom. The prices have increased, but so has the quality, with the standout being a fish taco starring a perfectly blackened fillet of tilapia, a generous scoop of guacamole, pickled purple onions and chipotle remoulade.
