Food scene

Mostly food places we find, every visit to baja is something new (Rosarito - primarily, Tijuana and Ensenada)
I’m a fan of carnitas but I’m super picky about it. I’ve been coming to this place for 20 years and this is my go to spot, friends and family have been impressed! Get the following: a pitcher of lemonade made with mineral water and carnitas with carne maciza (mah-seezah)

This place was a hidden gem, my wife was craving Italian and this is one of the best restaurants in Rosarito and Tijuana. The pizzas, salad and pastas are great. Try the Cerati pizza, milanesa w pasta and the salad(it’s huge). They also have live music on Saturdays.
