The Story of the Little Fish Taco That Could
Once upon a time, in the little village of Bisbee, Arizona there lived a family that opened a humble restaurant called Bisbee Grille. They had dreams of having the best restaurant in the town, and set out to do just that. They worked hard to get a wide selection on the menu, and hired the best people to fulfill that dream. One of those employees was Karina, and she brought many ideas with her as a cook.
One of those ideas was the fish taco, and it was a great hit. People from all around came to the restaurant to experience the taco. Time went on, the family restaurant grew and so did their dreams. One day they wondered if they could start a new restaurant, dedicated to the tastes in the area and south of the border. But they needed the confidence that it would be a hit, they had to have a dish to seal the deal. "I'll do it!" shouted the little fish taco. "Mmm, I don't know" said Karina; "OH PLEASE!" retorted the taco. "Ok, but don't let me down" Karina firmly stated through fiery eyes.
So they started Santiagos, and began yet another legacy of the family business, with another crack crew of cooks and servers. And what became of the little fish taco who knew it could? Well Santiagos created three soft corn tortillas filled with crispy battered cod, cilantro, cabbage, diced tomato, onion, Cotija cheese and ancho chili sauce, and called it The Rocky Point.
