Like usual, I didn't feel like cooking, so Chad and I headed off for a bite to eat. We decided to try Fred's Mexican Cafe in Old Town Pasadena. The decor was confused....it looked sort of Mardi Gras/Pirates of the Caribbean, pretty gaudy. The service was good and the food was decent. We happened to go on Taco Tuesday so they had drink specials and taco special (although we didn't order the taco specials). I had #8 Baja Style Baja fish taco and a shrimp enchilada served with Mexican rice & black beans and a Tecate. It was too much for me to eat after all those chips and salsa. Chad had #4 The Wedge Chicken taco and a cheese enchilada served with Mexican rice & black beans. We were both happy with what we ordered. For me nothing compares to Ernie's Taco House, still my all time favorite Mexican food.
