One of my favorite tacos in Tijuana is on Avenida Revolucion.  It's at the top of the stairway where the stairs go down to what seems to be hundreds of underground shops.  No cilantro to be found on them although they do serve them with a green onion, radish slices and a marinated carrot.  When I started driving down there they were 15ยข. They're probably a dollar or more now.
 
My other favorite was on Benito Juarez near the outdoor vendors.  I loved them until I found out I was eating brain tacos.  Never again!
 
I haven't been since we drove down to San Diego and had dinner with you so it's been along time. 
 
Unfortunately my safety prevents  me from ever going again.  You can get killed down there.

    Yeah.......TJ isnt the same anymore.
    We used to go at least once a month but that was YEARS ago!  
    Now the lines to get in and out are do damn long it's not even worth going there and the once to had bargains are non-existant!  
    Leather coats were plentiful and cheap but now a good sales at Wilsons is just as good if not better! 
    Nope.......my days of visiting TJ are long gone!

      Created a chicken stir-fry tonight. It was going to be fried rice, but things went horribly awry at my house this afternoon and I was lucky to get this accomplished.

          I would have loved some Popeye's chicken tonight - but with all the getting ready for the holiday stuff going on we ended up with tuna sandwiches and chips.

            We don't have a Popeye's close by so we drove and drove and had fried chicken from Mrs. Knott's.

              Tuna sandwiches are chips are great!  Do you use hard boiled eggs in your tuna?

                I believe tonight will be stir-fry with scallops and rice.

                    Tuna sandwiches are chips are great!  Do you use hard boiled eggs in your tuna?

                    I do!  But only one - we're too picky about the tuna - 2 small cans of solid white albacore in water and a couple of tablespoons each of finely chopped red onion, celery and dill pickle - and the egg, finely chopped also.  Only enough mayo - maybe 2 tbsp - to bind it and a sprinkle of black pepper and celery seed.  On whole wheat bread with Lay's Ruffles chips.

                      While at Tom's Farm yesterday I picked up a still warm loaf of cheddar jalapeno bread and a ring of Usinger's bologna.

                        Even though I have a refrigerator full of leftovers, I ended up with a peanut butter and honey sandwich on whole wheat. I may also have some Cocoa Puffs, since I'm still hungry.

                                    I had leftovers, since the trash goes out tonight. Bit of roast beef, few potatoes, couple of carrots, and some gravy mixed together in a bowl. Next to it a biscuit with butter and honey.

                                      How come you always get the good French stuff when I have only my home made sliders and thin sliced twice fried potatoes?

                                                Ann, did you add anything to the sauerkraut?  It's nearing that time of year that I cook some sort of pork and sauerkraut... usually with an ale.

                                                        Mar, Mom would brown the ribs in a bit of water, salt and pepper.....She would put the sauerkraut in a 13by nine.......add the ribs, water and all, cover and bake at 350 for 3 hours. The sauerkraut took on the most fantastic flavor from the ribs.....
                                                         
                                                        By the way, Bob is out of town, so I am having shrimp in garlic wine sauce, and a good french bread to soak up the juices....

                                                            I had a piece of pizza at Costco and now I'm munching on snacks they forced me to buy.
