Expert Recommendations

"This reminds me of a fish I used to have as a child in Catemaco. They hold their crispiness really well, and combine nicely with the aioli."
"I love these whole fried fish served with smoked paprika aioli. I am lucky to live in a booming food neighborhood and Nopa is still killing it. Editor's note: the sauce that comes with this dish may change periodically."
"It's usually, but not always, on the menu. This is just a pile of tiny, flavorful fish that've been fried until they're crispy, head and all. The dipping sauce changes, but they're always awesome."
"Doesn't matter whether it's smelt, anchovies or sardines—and no matter the sauce—this is a perennial favorite and something I order each and every time it's on the menu."
