I don’t know what the typical dining scene is in Tijuana on a weekday but I was very surprised to almost have the entire restaurant to myself for lunch. Javier Plascencia had a place right down the street from my new apartment but unfortunately it closed before I moved. My lunch at Mision 19 was lovely as was the service and for a minute I really wasn’t sure where I was but I wouldn’t have guessed Tijuana. If you find yourself in Baja California absolutely seek out one of Plascencia’s spots.
Tacos El Franc
I really hope that some of the rumors of Mexican taco spots moving north of the border come to fruition. These were delicious and ridiculously cheap.
