Tijuana’s Tacos Takeover Netflix’s “Taco Chronicles” 8/14/2019

Without a doubt, Tijuana’s tacos are a unique delicacy of the world. So much in fact that Netflix makes special mention of them when talking about the most delicious tacos de carne asada in existence. This all happens in the documentary series called “Taco Chronicles" that consists of 6 episodes, each one almost half an hour long, in which they talk about a particular kind of taco.

Our beautiful city of Tijuana is featured in Episode 4, where they talk about the exquisite taco de carne asada.

Two taquerias (taco stands) will probably be more famous, now that they have appeared in the Netflix show: Taco N Todo and Tacos El Franc. Both are known and admired by Tijuanense locals due to the special way in which they prepare and cook their tacos de carne asada.

El Franc is located in the corner of 8th or Miguel Hidalgo Street and General Rodolfo Sánchez Taboada Boulevard, almost in front of Costco. In the show, El Franc’s manager gives away the recipe for marinated beef meat that makes his tacos de asada possible. The recipe can be replicated easily, but the seasoning will be difficult, the taquero warns.

“When you prepare the taco de asada, it needs to be seasoned with garlic salt, cinnamon, and orange. The salt helps to loosen up the meat a little bit so that it is not too hard. Then, you roast the meat in charcoal and you put in some beans, onions, coriander, salsa, and avocado,” explained Ramiro Ramírez, the manager of Tacos El Franc.

The other taqueria is Taco N Todo, a stand/cart that has been making tacos, in the style of Sonora, in Tijuana for 20 years. It is located in Brasil Street in the corner of Aguascalientes and Colonia Madero. This cart is famous because of the flavor of their food, their spicy salsa, and because they prepare both carne de asada and rib tacos.

“The best taco we have is the rib taco. We roast the rib, we debone it, and we put the meat in the taco. We add the bone next to it and we can also add a special peanut salsa, which is spicy but very delicious,” taquero Felipe Dinas commented.

The series is already available in Netflix. You can watch the trailer right here:
