The trick to falling in love with Tijuana? See it — or better yet, taste it — like a local. This Tijuana food tour will take you on a journey to the city’s gastronomic gems. From street stalls to the birthplace of the Caesar salad, prepare to indulge in internationally buzzed-about eateries.
You’ll head to three different food stops, each showing off what makes the Tijuana food scene so delicious. You’ll also take a dessert break at a paletería, a traditional Mexican popsicle shop. And while some may say Tijuana is Mexico’s most infamous tourist trap, for those in the know, there are local finds to be found. We’re taking you to the hidden gems only known by locals — places like the back alley taco cart that serves up spectacular carne asada or the iconic empanada stand that you'd probably never find because it's tucked in the back corner of a random parking lot.
Along the way, your Tijuana tour will lead you to the city's oldest open-air market, a wonderland of artisanal crafts, exotic fruits, local cheeses, and other regional delicacies like Oaxacan mezcal.
You’ll also experience what it’s like to live at the busiest border crossing in the world, in a city inhabited by transplants from not just Latin America but all over the globe. Tijuana’s location on the U.S.-Mexico border makes for a constant flow of commerce, culture, and cuisine — including the cuisine that you’re here to taste, of course!
You’ll finish up your Tijuana food tour not just with a full stomach, but with a new appreciation for a city that’s about so much more than surf bars and tequila shots.
