I inherited my parents' love for Mexicali—the place being one of their favorite date spots in the past. It's where I first learned how to properly eat a burrito. The quality may have changed (or is it my taste?), but Mexicali will stay in my heart forever. I always get the steak burrito; and I also enjoy the sauces that come with the nachos.
LUNA Mexican Kitchen’s high-brow Mexican fares have earned it a Bib Gourmand distinction from the 2019 Michelin Guide. As soon as you enter, the waft of fresh, hand-made corn tortillas and chips welcome you to the colorful dining room! Rooted in its philosophy of local, unrefined, natural, and authentic (hence, “LUNA”) cooking, the restaurant’s menu features dishes that are made from scratch without artificial ingredients. Order the fire-roasted chile relleno (stuffed chili), which is stuffed with beef stew, then deep-fried to perfection!
