Playa Amor is a Mexican restaurant in Long Beach. Though Playa Amor is a smaller restaurant than chef Thomas Ortega’s Amor Y Tacos, the menu is more expansive and advanced. You notice the same array of tacos, burritos and enchiladas, but there's also a whole striped bass, butterflied from head to tail. Ortega roasts its flesh to the gorgeous golden brown of a crème brûlée and the consistency of the meat is as wiggly as pudding. You spoon the fish onto a warm corn tortilla that came straight from griddle, which is placed near the entrance and attended by a woman who makes all the tortillas for the restaurant.
