Lawndale might not be that close to the beach, but that doesn’t get in the way of it being home to some ridiculously good fish tacos. This place is technically called Ensenada’s Surf N Turf Grill, but everyone still uses the old name - Baja California Fish Tacos. The star of the menu here comes with lightly-battered fish fried to order, just the right amounts of spice, cabbage, creamy sauce, and a double-layer of flour tortillas that won’t fall apart. The shrimp tacos are good too, but we prefer to go for multiples of the fish.
