From the folks behind Kensington Quarters and Prohibition Taproom comes La Chinesca, a Mexicali dining experience housed in a former Jiffy Lube station that got a serious facelift. The menu takes inspo from Northern Mexico’s Baja region, featuring delectables including Shrimp Tostadas, Fried Peppers, and Birria Tacos alongside Chinese-American bites like Egg Rolls and Fried Wonton. The food menu gets a seasonal refresh, as does the cocktail menu with several spicy options.
The Mexicali restaurant that lives in a transformed former Jiffy Lube store offers multiple outdoor dining options. Whether you opt to settle under the green patio umbrellas or in a lawn chair in the outdoor lounge, just be sure not to skip the Quesabirria Tacos served with a side of consommé along with a jalapeno-infused cocktail.
