So I’m not sure of it’s a Cali thing but on a hot, sunny day all I want is some cervezas and Baja Style Fish Tacos! I have been missing these immensely so I decided to take matters into my own hands! First, get your hands on some good mexican beer – I prefer Pacifico Clara – light, crisp, and delicious. Side note: if you wanna know if your alcohol is vegan check out Barnivore. Take a pound of extra firm tofu (I use Wildwood brand) and press it for about half an hour, pat it dry and cut roughly into “fish stick” sized pieces. Marinate it in 1 1/2 cups of beer for about another half an hour. In the meantime, mix together 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of cornmeal, 1 tsp. of cumin and oregano, 1/2 tsp. of onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne or some other type of chili powder, or cheat and use your favorite cajun style spice mix, and salt & pepper to taste. Once your tofu has sat in the beer for awhile go ahead and pour that beer into the dry mixture. Mix well until it has a thick pancake like consistency. You might need to add a little more beer to get the right consistency (if you still have any left at this point). Coat your tofu pieces in the batter and in a cast iron skillet or deep frying pan add enough of your favorite oil ( I use canola) to completely submerge the tofu pieces and fry them until golden brown. They should look like this:

So if you live in Los Angeles and you have not visited Locali yet, what are you waiting for? Not only does this “convenience” store carry some great products (Teese!), have fantastic prepared foods, a super friendly staff, they now carry C’est La V baked goods! Additionally, you can follow them on Twitter and always be “in the know” about what they have! Check out their ExtraVeganza sandwich:
Grilled veggies, spinach, and artichoke tapenade on herb bread – delicious!
Now on to the C’est La V baked goods I scored at Locali! I am so glad I can jump in the car for a 5 min ride to get a sweet vegan fix!
