Hawaiian Fish Tacos Swimming Into Dallas This Fall

Good news for land-locked fish taco fans: Hawaii-based Coconut's Fish Cafe is planning to open two DFW locations later this year. The first will open somewhere in Plano in mid-to-late September and the second will hit Lovers Lane in November.

Per the Coconut's website, they make everything from scratch (except the ketchup) and fish is cut daily. The specialty of the house is grilled fish tacos served in white corn tortillas with several toppings including mango salsa and "island-style" coleslaw made with coconut milk; fish can also be had in a "fishburger" (grilled fish fillet sandwiches) or served over brown rice with all the burger toppings, and prepared in several different styles including blackened or with lemon butter. Other menu items include veggie, steak or chicken tacos, fish and chips, fried coconut shrimp and calamari.

The original Coconut's on the island of Maui opened in 2009 and has nearly 1,100 reviews and an four-and-a-half star rating on Yelp and a Zagat score of 27 (out of 30), for those who give credence to such things; a second location opened last year in Scottsdale.
