Let's Go Clandestino

CULINARY FOCUSED TOURS OF BAJA CALIFORNIA

ROSARITO AND PLAYAS TOUR

SUMMERTIME IS HERE AND WE WILL BE HOSTING A FEW TOURS THAT WILL BE HGIGHLIGHTING SOME COASTAL LOCATIONS, AS WELL AS SOME BEACH TIME.  OUR FIRST SUMMER TOUR SERIES WILL BE HEADING TO ROSARITO, A BEACH TOWN THAT ONCE USED TO BE THE GO TO BAJA VACATION DESTINATION IN THE 90'S BUT HAS RECENTLY BEEN GETTING MORE AND MORE VISITORS EACH YEAR. 

EL NIDO IS A CLASSIC RESTAURANT THAT HAS BEEN SERVING TRADITIONAL MEXICAN FARE IN ROSARITO SINCE 1971. THE DECOR OF THIS PLACE MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE WALKING IN TO A MEXICAN WESTERN HOUSE, YOU CAN SEE BRICK AND WOODWORK THROUGHOUT THE BUILDING. OH AND THERES A WALL OF COW SKULLS.  THERE ARE MULTIPLE BRICK OVENS IN WHICH THEY COOK THEIR HANDMADE FLOUR TORTILLAS AND MEATS. FRESH QUESO PANELA, SLOW ROASTED LAMB AND VENISON MACHACA ARE SOME OF THEIR SPECIALTIES. A WINE CAVE IS HIDDEN UNDERNEATH THE RESTAURANT FOR INTIMATE TASTINGS. 

PLAYAS DE TIJUANA IS THE BEACH NEIGHBORHOOD LOCATED RIGHT NEXT TO THE BORDER FENCE THAT STRECTHES ALL THE WAY INTO THE OCEAN AND DIVIDES IMPERIAL BEACH AND PLAYAS.  HERE YOU CAN ALSO FIND SOME HIDDEN GEMS FOR CRAFT BEER AND FOOD. PETANQUERO BISTRO IS A NEW SPOT THAT HAS BURROS AS THEIR SPECIALTY. IT IS A GREAT SPACE DESIGNED BY BRAU AND LIZ WHO HAVE ADDED A COURT OF PÉTANQUE AS PART OF THEIR ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENT AND VIBE. SO WE GET TO HERE AND DRINK SOME CRAFT BEER, MAYBE A HOUSE MADE SANGRIA WHILE PLAYING A GAME OF PÉTANQUE.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN TO TACOS EL FRANC IN TIJUANA KNOW HOW GOOD THEIR TACOS ARE. HOWEVER, SOME PEOPLE CLAIM THAT THE ORIGINAL TACOS EL FRANCES  LOCATION IN PLAYAS MIGHT BE A LITTLE BIT BETTER. EITHER WAY REST ASSURED THESE WILL BE SOME OF THE BEST TACOS YOU'VE EVER HAD.
