No. 18: Grilled Achiote-Rubbed Fish Tacos from Havana Hideout

Lake Worth's primo dive bar, Havana Hideout, also features some primo eats, thanks to  owner Chrissy Benoit's passion for homespun food. For a place that's little more than an orange building with four walls and a tropical, outdoor garden, the food turned out at the Hideout is something special. Benoit's place got a turn on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with host Guy Fieri last year, and the little hole in the wall has become more than a cult favorite since. It's achiote-rubbed fish tacos are its signature dish -- grilled fish made smoky with spicy chili rub, then cooled off with a splash of Benoit's fresh, tropical pineapple salsa. Sweet, smoky, spicy, tropical, and oceanic, these tacos combine the best of Florida with honest Latin-inspired grub.
