Tijuana Welcomes "Birriamen": The New Japanese-Mexican Fusion

It didn't take that much time for this creation to arrive to the city

TIJUANA.- Kai Sui Ramen is a bit far from the border, but any lover of ramen and/or birria (spicy stew, traditionally made from beef, goat meat or mutton) will definitely appreciate it. This is a restaurant that was born from the love for ramen, and one Tijuanense and her friend are the minds behind this project.

A huge bowl of “birriamen” awaits you at Kai Sui Ramen, also, you can choose between different options of this oriental broth, or if you’re into Thai food, you can enjoy a traditional “Pad Thai.”

Cynthia Hernández, the owner of this business, tells us that the inspiration to bring this dish to the city comes from the recipe of a Chef from Mexicali, Antonio de Livier, although the taste and preparation of Cynthia’s birria comes from recipes of her aunt and her grandmother.

Pasta, birria meat, broth, seaweed, radish, egg, chives, lemons and tortillas makes birriamen, a perfect combination.

The business opened on January 19; however, this dish has just been added to the menu. You can buy it for $8.00 dlls and it can be shared between 2 or 3 people. But if you don’t eat that much then you can ask for half an order for only $5.00.

If you are one of those people who struggle while choosing one dish of the menu, then this option can be your salvation, as strange as the combination may seem you’ll surely won’t leave disappointed. Are you interested in going and discovering it? This is the address.

They open from Tuesday to Sunday from 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
