Albany Eats: Fin Your Fishmonger

I find myself California dreaming so often. It’s not just the winter weather getting me down, it happens in the summer too. Sure I love the California sunshine, the beautiful nature and beach, but really what California has that’s got me hankerin’ is some of the worlds best fish tacos. I live on them when I visit the state, but I could never find a place to grab great fish tacos in Albany, until now! A visit to Fin Your Fishmonger [2050B Western Ave, Guilderland, NY 12084] satisfies these cravings and more. Walking in you’ll discover this really is a fishmonger, you can buy fresh fish, prepared fish, and all lots of accoutrements to go.

It’s more of a take out place, but there are a few little tables to eat in. We put our order in at the counter and waited a short time. They had two kinds of tacos on their menu so we went for both. One was a white fish with typical Mexican seasonings and fresh veggies.

I eat a lot of salmon at home so I don’t usually order it out, and I’ve never had it in a taco before. Jeff egged me on and I’m really happy he did, because the other one ended up being my favorite! The Salmon Korean BBQ taco was off the hook.
