Great seafood at a bargain price
I have eaten lunch at this La Playa location at least monthly for several years now. Their food is delicious and reasonable priced. Where else can you get a seafood lunch special for $5.99? My favorite is the Filete Flameado which is a fish, shrimp, garlic, and cheese delight. I cringed at the other review posted about the "reused" shrimp cocktail and I have to say I was surprised. The food is always fresh and I would be disappointed if that really happened.
Take a look at the El Salvadorean section of the menu and be sure to order a pupusa. I recommend the shrimp and cheese. Here's your chance to also try the authenic fried platains with cream and beans. Beware of anything that says mojo de ojo (drenched in garlic) because it could be overwhelming. I recall my mouth was almost numb from all the garlic on the fish I once tried. Mexican food is served here as well, but it would be a sin to not eat seafood at this restaurant.
The staff is always friendly, efficient, and usually willing to explain some of the foreign items on the menu.
Get there by 11:30 on Friday's during the Lenten Season or you will not find parking or an available table.
