Summer is coming up and one of my favorite places in TJ is the outdoor terrace at La Corriente. Being outside, ordering a few tostadas, an Indio beer with a CIelo Rojo glass and good music is something else. You can almost hear the waves and feel the san under your feet. This place has a kitschy look and great food. Their claim to fame are the tacos and tostadas even though their main dishes are also excellent. My goto menu are three tostadas: Red Snapper, Ahi Tuna & Guaymas (scallops). Each of them go for under $3 bucks so you can eat and have a couple of beers for about $15 dólares. They have a mezcal bar next door called El Tinieblo that serves mezcal based mixed drinks called "mezcalitas" that can be brought to your table. La Corriente occasionally has live bands on weekends and El Tinieblo has good DJ's including their resident cumbia digital superstar DJ Chucuchu. He's played everywhere in Mexico and as far as Australia. This place has a hip, urban vibe but is also family friendly as you can see on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Entre mas corriente, mas ambiente!
