Updated Playa Restaurant List

I come down to Playa every 2 months or so, and I try to visit new restaurants, joints, serendipitous finds and recommended new places on the Playa scene. I then update my restaurant list and include the reliable input of other Playa Peeps, so the list stays as current as I can make it. It seems to help out a lot of visitors.

Do a favor to other Playa visitors. Give the list to new arrivals when you leave, or pass it to friends who are coming down in the future. Or just leave it in your condo when you check out. This helps keep our best restaurants prosperous so they can stay the course and feed us on our next visit.

I again request any feedback from users of the list to help me keep abreast of changes in the food quality and service of the included eating establishments so everything stays as current as possible. Several places have closed or limited their hours due to the current downturn in the economy, so you may encounter some lapses in my update. Keep me informed so I can maintain the list properly.

Here is the most recent update as of February 15, 2011. I have had to limit some mentions because of the limit of size for postings on the thread. Keep me posted on new additions or closings so the list continues to represent the best of Playa restaurants with current updates. This is our list, and I depend on your input. The expansion of Playa has made it impossible for me to eat at all of them on an ongoing basis for fear of obesity and indigestion. I do, however, try to do my best.

For those interested in a list of Bars and Clubs in Playa, I refer you to the General Forum and an entry called "Bar-Nightclub List" submitted by jimmyMN which has been recently updated.

Thanks! Nice job! My cut and paste collection from over the years isn't very organized. This will give me a good start on cleaning things up!

Updates

Dpreefer, thank you for all your efforts. I live here and use your list to find someplace different.

Asadero el Pollo Estillo Sinaloa has another location on the corner of 30th Av and CTM.

El Chino
is closed.
Los Burritos del Gordo is gone. I am looking for another burrito place.

H & C Super Carn
es has locations on Constituyentes east of 30th Av and
CTM west of 10th Av.


Most often we go to Don Mario's Steak and Pasta on the corner of 10th Av and Calle 8. Reasonable prices and consistent quality.
