MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

With the Mexican border just minutes away, you might be tempted to skip this homey spot for a more “authentic” meal in Tijuana. But the taco cognoscenti know that Chef Priscilla Curiel’s guisados are every inch the equal of Baja’s—down to the fair prices and hefty portions (and without the long traffic lines on your way home).

Chef Curiel has amassed a cult following for her rich beef birria, crowned with a bone for scooping buttery marrow atop the taco. And yet, this menu has so many more delicious braises, like "dirty style" cochinita pibil with pickled red onion and cilantro, as well as the spicy longaniza sausage. Counter these heavy meats by topping your tortilla with lime and chili oil. Then prepare to enter taco heaven—no passport required.
