Typical food of Tijuana, Mexico

Due to its proximity to the state of California, the variety of local ingredients, and the influence of French, Spanish, Italian, and American cuisines, Tijuana offers an interesting and wide gastronomic offer.
The most popular dishes include Tijuana-style taco, a corn tortilla with a peculiar cone shape stuffed with meat and served with avocado and hot sauce. There are also grilled meat tacos and “Chile con carne,” a kind of thick soup or stew that contains beef, chili peppers, and red beans.

The most renowned dish, not only locally but also internationally, is the famous Caesar Salad, a delicious mix of lettuce with an exquisite dressing made with eggs, olive oil, and parmesan cheese. This salad was invented in a restaurant in Tijuana by the Italian-Mexican chef César Cardini in the 1920s.
