Located in a Hollywood strip mall next to older sibling Doomie’s Home Cookin’, Doomie’s NextMex makes a vegan Baja-style fish taco that is better than most fish tacos we’ve had. The golden, salty beer-battered “fish” is actually artichoke that’s flakey and tender, dressed in a light vegan crema, pico de gallo, and a big pile of cabbage. Doomie’s shines brightest with their nearly identical meat substitutions, like the juicy, slow-roasted “carnitas” made from soy and mushrooms. The fact everything is plant-based ultimately feels secondary, because the tacos here are fantastic and come on equally delicious handmade corn tortillas.
