Quick Bite: Bad Billy’s Mini Tuna Tacos

February 3rd, 2010

When I first started coming to Aspen, the space where Bad Billy’s was Cooper Street Ale House, one of the few divey bars in town. It was always a little too fratty for me, but you take what you can get.
When I got here last year, the place looked more or less the same, but the name had changed. I popped in for wings or whatever, but didn’t really see any huge difference.
What I discovered is that Bad Billy’s elevated the bar food in a pretty wonderful way.
Up top are the mini tuna tacos made with seared sushi-grade tuna sourced from sister restaurant, Kenichi, one of the nicer sushi restaurants in town. Wrapped in blistered, fried corn tortillas, they make an awesome one or two bite snack.
I followed that up with more ‘traditional’ fish tacos with beer battered fish on flour tortillas.
On another visit, I popped in with some co-workers and we partook in the $15 pitchers and played some music on the internet-enabled jukebox.
