The L.A.-area destination for fish tacos and all manner of Mexican seafood, Senor Fish is justly famed for its cooking, from the homemade salsas to the savory beans to the scallop enchiladas. We’re partial to the seafood quesadilla, a diet-busting dream of tortillas, cheese, shrimp and scallops. The Eagle Rock branch, in an old bungalow with a stone fireplace and tree-shaded patios, is charming as all get out. But while the South Pas branch is in an ugly strip mall, it has the same good food.
