Interviews & News Discusses the Newest Foodie Destination: Tijuana

It’s official. Tijuana is now a foodie destination. And while renowned chefs like Javier Placencia of Mission 19 and Miguel Angel Guerrero of El Taller have helped to put it there, the city’s food trucks and street food like birria, mariscos and wide variety of tacos deserve their fair share of the credit, too.

One of the oldest torta stands is the Tortas Wash Mobile that has been in business since 1964. Its name derived from the fact that it was originally adjacent to a car wash. Although the car wash is gone, Tortas Wash Mobile remains. The owners, the Hernandez family, were originally from Guadalajara but once they settled in Tijuana they made their mark with their beloved tortas.
