The humble taco is the gateway food into the world of hardcore deliciousness that is Cali-Baja cuisine -- the name used to describe San Diego’s distinct food culture. This culinary style comes from open collaboration between chefs on both sides of the Mexico-California border, and features fresh produce and locally caught seafood from both regions.
As food critic Troy Johnson discovers in this video, San Diego’s Cali-Baja vibes can take the form of the super-chill surfer aesthetics of Galaxy Taco or the upscale local-seafood experience of the high-end Bracero Cocina de Raiz.
Dive into the Cali-Baja experience above and whatever you do, don’t forget the limón.
