Long Beach arrival
Popular Southeast LA chef Thomas Ortega (Amor y Tacos, Playa Amor) is adding another new restaurant to his repertoire this week. It’s called Amorcito Taqueria, and it opens inside the LBX Hangar property in Long Beach, a mixed-used development stuffed with other restaurant ideas. Unlike Ortega’s sit-down restaurants, Amorcito taqueria is all fast casual, doing sub-$3 tacos, burritos, fries, and the like. It’s also the first time Ortega will be doing al pastor at any of his restaurants. Amorcita is open now for lunch starting daily at 11 a.m. and running until 3 p.m. weekdays, 5 p.m. Sundays, and 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday night.
