WHY A top contender for L.A.’s best fish tacos.
WHAT Still called by its former name, Tacos Baja Ensenada, this stylish lime-green former burger stand turns out seemingly weightless battered fish tacos whose textural contrasts of crunchy cabbage, crackly battered, moist fish and tart, rich crema are an epiphany. A tiny ceviche bar serves blends of marinated seafood and tostadas splashed with lime and cilantro.
