Tortas Washmobile

The car wash is long since gone, but the little stand selling only carne asada tortas, that got it's name from the car wash has remained in the same location since 1964.

They only sell one item.  Carne asada tortas.  Those are sandwiches made from their own style bread, baked just for them, filled with grilled then chopped beef.  The toppings are a bit of mayo to grill the bread, tomatoes, red onions and salsa.  Jalapeños are available if you want.  That's all they serve, other than soft drinks.

When there is only one item, there is a great opportunity to focus on improving it.  Apparently that has worked for Tortas Washmobile, they have lasted longer than the car wash and have been mentioned on dozens of websites and TV shows.  They now have other locations in Tijuana, but be sure to stop by the original.

Tortas Washmobile is only one-half block from the busy street the locals call El Boulevar (Agua Caliente) on Jalisco.  The intersection of Jalisco and Agua Caliente is just one block west on Agua Caliente from the southbound free road to Rosarito, two blocks from the northbound lanes.  You should give it a try.

Day of the Dead

When we first learned of Day of the Dead, like most people from the US, we thought it was similar to Halloween.  That's a natural reaction, since Day of the Dead follows Halloween and has many items and images of skulls and skeletons.  Turns out, that's not at all the case.
