Let’s Taco ‘Bout Some Fish

There’s just something about adding fish to a taco that makes it an instant game-changer. We like to change the game up here in Greater St. Cloud, so give these fish taco options a try. 7 West Taphouse offers the blackened fish tacos, featuring cod, shredded cabbage, pico, cilantro, and a delicious chili sauce. At The Pickled Loon, you can order the shrimp tacos, where they up the game by adding avocado, a cilantro lime slaw, tomatoes, and roasted garlic aioli. Or if you like your fish wrapped in a double layer of delicious carbs, order the fish tacos from Crooked Pint, where they include beer battered cod and a list of mouthwatering toppings.
