For about five years my pal Bill Esparza aka streetgourmetla has been asking me to hang around with him in Tijuana. Perhaps it was the memories of debauched high school weekends down there that caused me to wait so long to say yes. What a shame! Joining me for TJ 101 were Chef Andre Guerrero of Oinkster and Massimiliano and Amy Scattergood, editor of LA Weekly food blog Squid Ink. Needless to say, we had a blast. We delivered ourselves into Bill’s hands for 24 hours of a perfectly curated visit. Let’s start with our morning excursion to the Mercado Hidalgo. Best way to wake up ever.
