Tia Juanita’s Fish Camp
Housed in a made-over fast-food joint is a colorful seafood shack with a decidedly Cajun influence. The menu consists mostly of standard fried items like shrimp and catfish, but there are some unexpected gems, like gumbo with the color and consistency of café au lait, lots of plump shrimp, and just the right amount of rice to grab with a spoon. The fish tacos are winners too, complemented by a tart, cilantro-spiked avocado crema that had us wishing the chef would share the recipe. (12/14)
