10 Essential Seafood Tacos in Baja Chosen by Bill Esparza

IMG_2543-1

Our friends at FirstWeFeast sent over this excellent article on seafood tacos in Baja, which begins thusly:

“It’s a place where a middle-class guy like me can make it rain,” says Bill Esparza, the unofficial spokesman of Baja’s food scene, and the man and mouth behind food blog Street Gourmet LA. Esparza first went to Tijuana in 1988 with college friends “to drink dollar beers, meet San Diego State girls, and eat bacon-wrapped hot dogs at 5am before stumbling back across the border.” Around 2000, he started making regular trips to the area, and he’s been leading culinary tours of Baja for the past 14 years.

FirstWeFeast is based in NYC, but they know who to ask about Baja tacos. The piece runs through 10 locations you'll need to try in Baja and includes awe-inducing photographs like the one above. Read the full post here.
