Wahoo’s Fish Taco
3556 Torrance Blvd
Torrance, CA 90503
Wahoo’s Fish Taco is located in a little strip mall on the North side of the Del Amo Center between Hawthorne Blvd and Madrona Ave. The restaurant is surf/skate style with stickers, surfboards, skateboards and an autographed LA Kings hockey jersey as decorations. Rock is playing over the sound system but at a reasonable volume so it is noticeable but not in the way of conversation. Parking in this area is very tough because the lot is shared with a Quizno’s, a Chicken Dijon and a Domino’s Pizza. When entering the restaurant you order from the menu board, pay at a register and find a table. You fill your own soda at the Pepsi machine and waitress brings your order to your table.
CARL: My family and I go to Wahoo’s Fish Taco as part of our occasional rotation of dinner restaurants. The food is reasonably healthy, priced about right, and is tasty when enjoyed at the restaurant or as a to-go order. On this trip I ordered the #8 Cajun Fish Bowl with white beans and white rice. Much of the menu, including this fish bowl, seem to be healthy choices with the meat being grilled rather than fried. The white beans are slightly healthier with 851 Calories; 22 Grams of Fat; 7 grams of Saturated Fat; 113 Grams of Carbs. Definitely not low carb or low calorie but pretty decent for Mexican food. I found the fish to be very tasty and the Cajun flavoring was just right – not too spicy. The white beans had a nice texture and flavor to them and I ended up mixing the rice, beans and fish into a blend with each bite. It was easy to order, quick turnaround, good price and very tasty. I like Wahoo’s and I’ll stay a regular customer. Wahoo’s get a solid 4.5 Pigs.
Oliver: Not really sure where I wanted to go, Carl mentioned Chicken Dijon next to Wahoo’s, and I said,”perfect, lets do Wahoo’s”. I love fish tacos, and will usually jump at the chance to try out a new fish taco place. Wahoo’s fits the stereotype as Carl noted. I went with my old standby, two tacos, rice and beans. I ordered mine with the Cajun grilled fish, black beans, white rice. Large diet Pepsi, and a bowl of chips and salsa, grand total $10.89. The fish in the taco’s tasted great, nice and spicy, you will need to add your own salsa, they have only the fish, cheese, some tomato bits and lettuce in them. The black beans were pretty good, the rice as well. Can’t find anything to complain about. Maybe a more varied supply of salsa’s and hot sauces would have been nice. This was my first time here and I will definitely be returning with the family. If you are looking for great food, reasonably healthy and under 10 bucks, then this will do well. It’s not really a restaurant experience meaning you will have to serve and refill your own drinks, but it is still pleasant and they do at least bring it to you, the parking blows and they serve Pepsi. I give it 4 pigs.
