Baja Sol Question
Posted 29 April 2012 - 07:12 AM
I was told the fish tacos are “breaded” with corn tortilla ingredients, so I assumed that would safe. I ordered these on corn tortillas and they came this way:
Tortilla Crusted White Fish, Cabbage, Onion/Cilantro Mix & Southwestern Sauce.
I am also now dairy free, so the Southwestern Sauce might have not been such a grand idea. But I experienced symptoms severe enough that I don’t think it was just a dairy exposure, it seems like something more.
Anyway, I have eaten safely at Baja many times, I usually get steak, beef or chicken tacos on a corn tortilla and have had no adverse issues. I also typically eat the corn chips with their house salsa and for a side dish the Baja Rice again with no apparent problems.
So my main suspect at this point is the fish tacos since that was something different from my typical meal there. Does anyone have thoughts on whether these contain gluten or are particularly susceptible to CC? Thanks!

I wouldn't be surprised if they use a wash, or add some flour - and either don't think about it or don't know it.
And are they frying them? Is it a dedicated fryer?

I think it's best just to stay away from this menu item for the forseeable future. Contacting the corporate office is a great idea (they are a chain) and also a more detailed conversation with a local manager on the preparation process would be in good order.
Now that I've had a pretty bad reaction I'm kicking myself for being careless, I guess it's called learning the hard way! Thanks again!
