A Taste of Mexico

Mexico has a very rich culture, especially when it comes to cuisine. The food is vibrant, colorful and delicious. It’s also surprisingly varied, and split by region.

My first taste of Mexico came in Baja California, at the northwestern edge of the country, in a state that has never really been famous for its fine foods. The most famous Baja dish is decidedly still the Caesar salad, which according to legend was invented in Tijuana in the 1920s.

Tijuana and all of Baja California have risen high above their humble beginnings, nowadays offering an amazing variety of delicious Mexican food, as well as the beloved Baja Med cuisine. A lot of the dishes concentrate on fresh seafood, but meat dishes are also plentiful.
