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.

We had a great time sitting and trying each new course. The waitstaff was super friendly and explained each course to us. She had the Chef’s Tasting Menu. I’ve posted a few photos below:
