You know that Caesar Salad you get at TGI Friday's? Well, it was invented one day in 1924 when a chef named Caesar Cardini ran low on food supplements and had hungry customers to feed. Today, the restaurant is called Caesar's and sits along Tijuana's seedy party zone along Avenida Revolucion. It was nice dining along the strip with NY Times writer Marc Lacey, watching thirsty, rowdy gringo's in search of cheap beer specials and Donkey shows, all the while watching our server whip-up this most elegant salad. Who would've thunk it. Seems like something that would have been created by a some chef in Italy or France or something. If you go there, don't worry, they use bottled water to wash the lettuce.
