Priscilla Curiel not only managed to keep her flagship restaurant, Tuetano Taqueria open throughout the pandemic with a combination of Venmo and sheer grit, she also revamped her popular Naturale Deli in National City into Mujer Divina Burrito and Coffee House in late 2020. Smaller, thinner Tijuana-style burritos de hielera use the same succulent birria that made Tuetano famous, along with combinations like Chorizo with Potatoes, Chicharron in salsa verde, Machaca Ranchera, and a rotating menu of weekly specialties. Coffee drinks are made with organic beans from Chiapas, Mexico, and roasted in Ensenada in drip brews, a variety of lattes, and cafe de olla, alongside an array of breakfast pastries, toasts, and scones.
How to book: In person or online via Toast for pickup.
Okay, we’re cheating a little here, because Mujer Divina Coffeehouse is also owned by Priscilla Curiel. She turned her popular Naturale Deli in National City into a coffee and burrito shop that serves Tijuana-style burritos de hielera, using the same excellent birria that goes into Tuetano Taqueria’s tacos. They’re available in flavors like machaca ranchera, chorizo with potatoes, and chicharron in salsa verde, plus a weekly specialty burrito. Coffee drinks, using organic beans from Chiapas, Mexico, include café de olla, drip brews, and an array of flavored lattes, plus a nice selection of conchitas, toasts, and scones.
How to order: In person or online via Toast.
