Three Soft Shell Tacos from Livia's Dish on Main Street in Worcester, MA

Many of my friends had been talking about Livia’s Dish and the great meals that they enjoyed there with their family and friends.  Friends have been posting about their $5 Wednesday burger night or their Sunday Brunch. So I knew this months foodie night was not to be missed. Tucked away on the outskirts of Worcester, Livia’s Dish is a quaint house sitting right on Rte 9. Walking into the restaurant I felt like I was entering a friends home – such a welcome casual feel all around.

While we were there on a Wednesday night I thought about the burger but really was in the mood for something a little different. Though after seeing the burgers and the homemade rolls I might need to check them out on my next visit. They have a diverse menu but what caught my eye was something off of the bar plate menu – Three Soft Shell Tacos. While it was on the bar plate menu this was a good sized dinner portion of lightly crisped haddock. Loved the light crisp as it allows you to really enjoy the fish and enjoy a light meal without feeling too full.  The three tacos came on a stand that allowed me to easily grab each to enjoy without losing all of the fillings on the plate.  What makes fish tacos are the generous accompaniments – in this case a nice spicy chipotle aioli and spicy cilantro slaw.  I really enjoy spicy spicy foods so if that isn’t something you enjoy, no worries these were light on the spicy side, could have been a tad spicier for my taste.  Overall, great dinner, service and atmosphere.  The question isn’t when I will be back but what Sunday brunch will I be at. Enjoy!
