Above are all places that locals took me to or told me about; I never woud have found any of them (except perhaps El Fogon) on my own.
Went back to Paco´s Tacos yesterday (after doing two dives at Dos Ojos) and realized it´s actually called "Tacos Pacos". As they say in Thailand, "same same but different". Was just as good as the first time and my sister agreed that they were the best fish tacos she´s ever had.
The last place I mentioned above (Los Jueves Son de Patria...) is simply called "Aqua Chile" by locals and is only open from 2PM to 6PM! Evidently if you get there any later than 3PM you will probably have to wait 15-45 minutes for a seat. Yes, it´s that good.
I noticed that there is a casino next to Plaza de Las Americas mall--anyone know if there is any live poker there? I know there is live poker in Cancun....
To all you internet pros living in Playa: instead of sitting home alone in your underwear all day clicking buttons on your computer, why not organize a friendly home game, say a mixed game, one round 2/5 NLHE and one round 1/3 PLO? Whose to say with a few rich tourists plus the right mix of tequilla it wouldn´t be equally profitable (plus a lot more fun)?
