Fish Taco Ground Zero

Some food is closely identified with specific cities - Philadelphia has it's cheesesteaks, New York has pizza.  For San Diego, it has to be fish tacos.

The history of the fish taco predates the arrival of Europeans in Mexico, and Spanish conquistadors were the first Europeans to experience eating one.

Fast forward to 1983, when Ralph Rubio opened up his first Rubio's restaurant that featured his version of the fish tacos he experienced while on a college break in San Felipe Mexico.  Now every Mexican eatery offers them, and they are the subject of culinary competition at high end restaurants.

Who has the best?  The San Diego Union-Tribune has an article called "Quest for the Fish Taco" that sheds some light on some unique San Diego versions, but the only way to know for sure is to go eat a bunch.  Let us know what you decide.
