Crossing the border is easier these days, and the new checkpoints are less congestive. We went on a Friday night leaving from downtown San Diego. Bracero, a local SD favorite and Mision 19's chef Javier Plascencia parted ways so we decided to go straight to his restaurant in TJ. From downtown, it will take and hour and half if you... More

Not good for watching events on tv (no tv's), great for first dates, romantic dates special ocasiones or just friends out for the night and a great... More

I loved everything I ate! We had a cocktail to start and then a tuna tartar to share. My main plate was a Lonja de Pescado that was delicious and as a desert sugar apples ( I cannot remember de name ) . Everything was delicious and I loved that the su-chef Luis went to the table to explain us... More

Not for kids or families on vacation. This is for romantic dinners and impressing the clients or your date. Extensive wine list and cocktails. Dishes are done for art, not for filling up or gorging. Portions are small, sauces are given for taste and drizzled on sparingly. Your plate will look like a piece of art. Taste is good. Drinks... More

Our Mexican Chef has done a great job creating and innovating the menu. It is recognized a change for good in the menu and the new Chef is doing a great job. I highly recommend to let the chef bring the marriage to your table, good selection of wines and very nice place to enjoy lunch or dinner. Business or... More

This restaurant is amazing in so many ways. One of the best I've ever been to. The atmosphere, service and food is top notch. Teresa our waitress was incredibly kind and really knowledgeable about all the dishes. Mission 19 is great for big groups or romantic dates. We ordered the fried oysters (my favorite), grilled octopus, pork belly clam chowder,... More

This is where it all began--the spark that started the cultural revolution in food in Tijuana after the drug wars. This is fine dining at it's best in Tijuana, and Mision 19 sets the standard. Chef Javier Plascencia is an icon in the Baja restaurant scene and his influence stretches from teh border down to Ensenada which his many diverse... More
