A South Bay taco hotspot is preparing to expand into Little Italy. where La Taqueria Tijuana will soon be slinging tacos made with hand-pressed tortillas and stuffed with top-grade, charbroiled cuts out of its new home at the base of the Broadstone building on Kettner Boulevard.
The menu will mirror that of its original Palm Avenue location in Imperial Beach, with tacos, tortas, quesadillas, and tostadas available with carne asada, adobada, pollo asado, carnitas, plus a vegetarian taco made with nopales. Familiar items from San Diego area taco shops, such as carne asada fries, rolled tacos, and large burritos will also be available as well as a weekend birria special.
This new space will also feature a craft beer program with a rotating selection of Baja brewers, including Insurgente, Cerveceria Tijuana, and Agua Mala on tap and in bottles. A limited wine program will include regional wines from the Valle de Guadalupe.
Opening by mid-December under current restrictions on indoor dining, La Taqueria Tijuana will have outdoor seating on-site, but the 1,300-square-foot space holds communal seating, individual tables, a bar section, and a standing counter as often found in taquerias south of the border, which will be activated once indoor dining is allowed to resume.
