This Playa restaurant takes its name from a traditional Mexican dish known as an aguachile: chili-marinated shrimp plus lime juice, onion, and sometimes other ingredients that lend it a strong, spicy-citrus flavor. With its open-air setting and laid-back, beachy style, plus a location a few blocks from bustling 5th Avenue, Los Aguachiles is in fact more a local hangout than tourist joint. There’s an extensive menu of other casual Mexican seafood, most notably delicious tacos and tostadas (crispy tortillas piled high with traditional ingredients), as well as mescal cocktails and the chamochela (chelada-style beer mixed with sauces and rimmed with chili powder and shrimp).
