Pierna de Borrego (Leg of Lamb) – La Espadaña. Tijuana

My rating: 4 1/2 stars

About 10 years ago, a friend told me to try La Espadaña, a lovely restaurant in an upscale neighborhood of Tijuana. “Try the Tampiqueña” he said. I eventually tried the Tampiqueña, a tasty steak covered in onions and peppers, but this time, I went for the leg of lamb.

It was a generous piece of beautifully braised lamb, served in its own juices, complexly flavored with cinnamon and spices that wouldn’t have surprised me in a Greek restaurant… except for the obvious presence of some smoky peppers. The presentation was delightful, especially when I was presented with a large dish of dried oregano, parsley, chopped onions and crushed peppers. This great meal and a diet Coke cost me $17.50 plus tip. Maybe I’ll have the Tampiqueña next time… or something entirely different.

  1. I do trust all of the ideas you’ve presented in your
    post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for newbies. Could you please extend them
    a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

  2. I have noticed you don’t monetize mexicohereandthere.com, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn extra cash every
    month with new monetization method. This is the best adsense alternative for any type of website (they approve
    all websites), for more info simply search in gooogle:
