One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Fish Tacos @ TJ Oyster Bar in Bonita, CA

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday and as a Catholic practiced the abstinence of meat during this day. So what does that mean? I'll be eating fish tacos from TJ Oyster Bar in Bonita. It's a small community along the 54, south of San Diego and north of Chula Vista for those who don't know. We basically came here for their popular 99 cent fish tacos and ended getting other types of seafood tacos to-go out of impulse. Get this, the 99 cent fish tacos are an everyday price and not a special. How awesome is that?!?

Fish Tacos @ TJ Oyster Bar in Bonita

The above photo is TJ Oyster Bar's popular Fish Taco for under a buck. It's dipped in house batter and deep fried served with cabbage, tomato and cream. It's so delicious! The tacos are smaller than the ones you get at Rubio's. But it has larger fish pieces and has better flavors and at a better price that you can't ignore. I also like the batter they used for the fish at TJ's more too. So far, they've got the best fish tacos in San Diego. But I'm not done yet...

Garlic Shrimp Taco @ TJ Oyster Bar in Bonita

I also didn't want just ordinary fish tacos. I wanted to get their Garlic Shrimp Taco (above) to change it up a bit. The taco has plenty of small shrimp, guarantying a shrimp in every bite. I could have eaten a ton of these if it weren't for the $3 price tag. It was worth it for one, but wanting more than two, the value diminishes a good amount.

Mariln with Cheese Taco @ TJ Oyster Bar in Bonita

Now I'll tell you what was worth the $3 price tag. It's the Marlin with Cheese Taco. They pack this taco full of delicious juicy Marlin. This taco isn't a light meal like the first fish taco. It's a bit heavier and more fulfilling. I could eat two Marlin tacos and it would feel like I ate four of the regular fish tacos. So good!

Be prepared that TJ Oyster Bar is really small and has a good following. So you can expect to see lines coming out the door at times. But the service and food are worth it, so check them out...
