The food scene in Tijuana is heating up… and it’s not all tacos.

During a recent trek across the border with other local food bloggers, we spent an entire day eating our way across the city from tortas to craft beer. While there was no standout (everything was fantastic), the day ended with a visit to the reopened and renovated Caesar’s Restaurante Bar, the birthplace of the Caesar salad.

Even though a trip to Tijuana isn’t easy for everyone — especially those who live outside San Diego — the recipe for Caesar’s salad is easy to replicate at home. (Check out the video here.)

  1. I always thought Caesars salad was named after Julius Caesar. I learned something new! Cool graphic too.
