Av. Revolución 1059, Zona Centro, 22000 Tijuana, B.C., Mexico
Home of the Caesar Salad
For those that don’t know it the Caesar salad was born in Tijuana in 1934 at this very spot that exists today. It’s a great story and well worth looking up on Google.
Meanwhile, the restaurant is pure nostalgia from the days of US prohibition , when Americans flooded across the border for a Tijuana cocktail.
Located at what was the “tenderloin” a few years back, this section of Revolution has become a hotbed of new restaurants and shopping, and yes the occasional Zebra painted horse.
Highlights of the menu, the Caesar salad made tableside, Bone marrow in tall bones with a veal demi, Octopus and a fantastic array of Mexican wines.
The interior is old world wood paneled, dim lights, a 30 seat long bar and the music vintage Sinatra and the big bands.
Tijuana is a special place with food that rivals New York , Chicago and Los Angeles. Each week, I’ll bring you a different Latin destination!
