Tacos Baja Ensenada: 99 Essential Restaurants 2011

Why is Tacos Baja Ensenada still on this list? Isn't it time to switch allegiances to Ricky's, or Taco Nazo, to the Best Fish Taco in Ensenada, or to any of the hundred other places that have learned how to make this glorious dish? I don't know — maybe next year. Because in East L.A., you still come no closer to the ideal than these crunchy, sizzlingly hot strips of batter-fried fish folded into warm corn tortillas with salsa, shredded cabbage and a squeeze of lime, sprinkled with freshly chopped herbs and finished with a squirt of thick, cultured cream. Stingray soup? They've got that, too. Entire religions have been founded on miracles less profound. 5385 Whittier Blvd., E.L.A. (323) 887-1980. Wed., Fri.-Sat., 9 a.m.-9 p.m.; Mon.-Tues., Thurs., Sun., 10 a.m.-8 p.m. No alcohol. Lot parking. All major CC. Mexican.
