In recent years, Tijuana’s culinary scene has become renowned for the cadre of chefs finding inspiration in—then elevating—Baja California’s vibrant street food scene.
For our Best of Tijuana in Eight Courses, we’re heading to Tras / Horizonte, La Querencia + Misión 19, three Tijuana restaurants whose respective chefs—Guillermo "Oso" Campos, Miguel Ángel Guerrero + Javier Plascencia—have been responsible for putting Mexico’s northwesternmost city on the world culinary map.
Our day will begin at One Bunk, Tijuana's first boutique hotel.
Mezcal Reception at One Bunk TJ
Our first stop will be at One Bunk, Tijuana's first boutique hotel, located in the heart of Avenida Revolución. The day will begin with a tasting of Mezcal, to toast, and open up the appetite.
Tras / horizonte
After our mezcal toast concludes, we will head to chef Guillermo "Oso" Campos' Tras / Horizonte. The vibrant space will welcome us with open arms, and feature two of Chef Oso's famed dishes. Bites will include one signature taco + one surprise dish + a craft beer.
On our third stop we will visit the birthplace of the Baja Med movement at chef Miguel Angel Guerrero's La Querencia. Mexican cuisine meets a fusion of Asian and Mediterranean flavors, boasting the local ingredients of Baja California. On the menu, the dishes will pay an homage to the land and sea that make up this beautiful region.
Our evening will end at chef Javier Plascencia's Misión 19, internationally known as one of Tijuana's top culinary establishments. The seasonal menu prides itself on the use of local ingredients and producers, in which the ingredients don't need to travel more than 125 miles from the restaurant. The night will feature three of Mision 19's signature dishes, paired with a glass of the region's wine.

The CTH Way
A blogger once described Club Tengo Hambre outings this way: 'It felt like very cool friends were showing us around their town.' That's what CTH is all about. We are a roving supper club, not a food tour. Our trips are small, intimate gatherings. Our aim is to celebrate both the social aspect of food in bringing people together and the vibrant scene that makes Mexico the best place in the world for street food, craft beer and wine. We want you to bring your friends + make new ones.
