Foodie heaven isn’t the first thing I think of in Tijuana, but I was delighted to find my thoughts altered after a recent trip and was looking forward to bringing you 3 locations to hit up on a Tijuana food tour, of sorts. Whether it’s a flight away or a drive away (for you Californians, especially!) here’s three not-to-miss places for good eats and drinks in this city just south of the United States border:
Telefonica Gastro Park
TELEFONICA GASTRO PARK:
This destination was an absolute highlight of our visit. From grilled sandwiches, to ceviche, to gourmet cheeses, to craft beer, tacos and more they have something for everyone. Dare I say it’s even a bit…hipster? I never expected to experience such a gem in the city but it was incredible and worth the trip. For more info check out our more detailed review of Telefonica here.

This restaurant was founded in 1927 and their claim-to-fame is the invention of the Ceasar salad. They prepare it table side and seeing a lot of eggs, oil and anchovies going into the dressing had me wondering if it really could be tasty…but WOW was it delicious! I couldn’t believe how incredible it was – certainly the best Caesar salad I’ve ever had. I can’t recommend it enough!

Revolucion Avenue between 4th and 5th Streets, Tijuana, Mexico 22000
NORTE BREWING CO.:
Who knew Tijuana was so much in tune with the craft beer movement? We stopped at Norte to enjoy some afternoon brews – the thing that struck me most upon entering the space was it’s amazing view…but the beer kept us there and would have me going back. It’s on the fifth floor of the Foreign Club parking lot in downtown Tijuana.
