Tales from our rich neighbor:

Everything is for the locals — Chad Deal
“Tijuana is a junkyard,” and nobody knows Tijuana’s junkyards better than the Sullivans.

They go all night at this park — Matthew Suárez
Tijuana is a city of myths and misconceptions. At nearly a century old, Parque Teniente Guerrero also has its share.

I Have Loved Tijuana — Bill Manson
Everybody knows that Pasaje Rodriguez is shaping up to be the coolest passage in TJ. But who knew of the jewel right in its heart?

Beer Town, MX — Chad Deal
Over 80 microbreweries exist throughout Baja, but more than anywhere, Mexicali is proving itself as a hot spot for innovative small-batch beers.

Don Pedro’s bit of real Mexico — Ed Bedford
Pedro’s known as El Loco. Yes, he’s eccentric. But he insists it’s everybody else that’s different. His place used to be called “Mariscos El Locochon.” But most of the time he’d fry your fish on the beach, in cooking oil in a truck’s upturned hubcap over a fire.

Josué’s kitchen — E.V. Hepworth
The Kitchen was created out of a need for a larger space than La Tentación, located in Pasaje Gomez — the funky, previously abandoned, covered alleyway off Revolución Avenue.
