Baja Style Cuisine in Southern California

Infusing Authentic Flavors Into Our Tacos!

Every taco enthusiast in Southern California has heard of Baja Style Cuisine. This popular culinary style originated in the Baja California region of Mexico and has since made its way into the hearts (and stomachs) of foodies everywhere. It’s this authentic cooking tradition that makes Casanova Fish Tacos one of the best spots for rich and authentic Mexican cuisine. But what is Baja Style and how does it set itself apart from other cooking styles?

Understanding Baja Style Cuisine

At Casanova Fish Tacos, we base our foods on Baja Style Cuisine. This unique style is a flavor-fusion of traditional Mexican dishes and the flavors of its Pacific coast, particularly from several regions including Tijuana, which is considered to be the birthplace of the fried fish taco.

Baja Style foods emphasize using locally sourced ingredients, including seafood. This is due to Mexico’s close proximity to the shoreline just south of California, creating a history filled with heritage and innovation that’s as rich as the dishes themselves.

How Baja Style Cuisine Was Invented

The tradition of Baja Style Cuisine originally developed throughout the Baja region of Mexico with fishermen who would use their catch to create delicious dishes. These foods would evolve over time and start to incorporate other ingredients including fresh herbs and spices. Baja Style would soon become a staple of Southern California as the Mexican diaspora continued to establish itself, bringing its rich heritage and cultural dishes with them.
