Dude, I ate a tentacle in Tijuana!
Well … my friend ate most of it, but I nibbled it. Does that count? Lol
A friend and I went to Tijuana to try a 6 course tasting menu from Mision 19. The Uber ride from la linea internacional was just a few minutes. The building is concrete and tall. You take the elevator up to the second floor and enter the restaurant filled with floor-to-ceiling glass and helpful waitstaff.
