Last Saturday we took our kid for his first trip to Tijuana, my mom and suegra had to visit the Destist so went ahead and planned a mini trip to TJ with them. Before leaving we had the usual burrito de huevo and a coffee and headed out to pick up my mom’s and suegra. My kid was stocked and wanted to get there already.
The first thing my kid asked for was Papitas so I got him some Adobada Sabritas, hehe. Some of the stuff on the buildings are pretty interesting. The building decorations are art on it’s own.
This was on somebodies wall, don’t know what it means, it’s probably just for decoration, but it’s a full on painting on tile ebbed ed into the wall.
Hand drawn signs have always been my favorite, here’s a Taxi sign in the street. I wish I could make this into a font.
Churros with Cinnamon are the best. Have you seen how these things are made? Awesome.
Julian was tired of eating Papitas, Tacos, Nieve and candy he finally was about to give in and call it a day. Before he fell asleep he told me that “Me gusta Mexico” then I had to carry him for an hour before we crossed the border. I took some time to post some DIMEX stickers before leaving town. Going back pretty soon. Maybe Ensenada this time. Nos vemos.

I get very excited when I release new T-Shirts and can’t wait until I do. I love to see and hear what type of reactions I get from our followers on the designs that once roamed my mind then got sketched up to the point of it being designed and printed on quality T-Shirts. Our brand has come along way to this day and point, we have been through many hurdles I bet many brands have passed and been through in their history. Our new collection has more to the point designs and less explanation to them. Elotes Con Chile, Just Add Water, Air DIMEX, Los Narcos De Sinaloa, Los Burros De Tijuana and Taco Life are the six new additions to the DIMEX Collection available now on our Online Shop, get them before they run out. Enjoy.
On my last quick visit to “Tijuas”, I went as usual to the best taqueria Tijuana has to offer. Tacos Los Albañiles, I don’t know exactly where the place is since I’m not to street savvy in those areas but all I know that it’s the bomb. All kinds of meats, tortillas, and the drinks don’t even get me started on the drinks. Mouth watering Coka-Cola en su botella, mmm. Tripitas, asada, carnitas, cueritos, cabeza, ojo, buche, birria, barbacoa, al pastor, de pollo, de pescado, de frijoles even de vegetables if you are a vegetarian. Topped with frijoles de al olla, y su guacamolito, honestly the sickest. If you go down there ask a cab driver or better yet so you don’t get kidnapped (jk) ask a local, jeje. Mis saludos al Guero the taquero in charge, originally from El Salvador, who would of thought. See you then, and be safe. Remember “Come Frutas Y Verduras”
CHINGON. A TRUE DREAM COME TRUE.
So on my way to Norwalk to take care of some business (I’ll post about that later) I got super lost and Jessenia was making fun of me as usual. Even-though my phone has a map that tells you where to go, I still got lost. Stupid Map source sent me somewhere else. I need to start getting used to the city life since I plan on moving down there, so I need to learn how to get around LA without wasting my time by getting lost. So after I took care of business, I decided to drop by The Nahui Ohlin Store AKA Insurgentes in Los Angeles.
When we got there I parked in some Asian Market and wasn’t to sure if to leave my care there so I moved it and parked somewhere else. As we walked Inside we saw everything from clothing, to jewelry, cd’s, bags and lot’s of accessories. I loved the layout of the shop, it had a very relaxing ambient along with some good old incense sticks burning in the background.
I was looking Mr. Botan the original creator of the Chavo del Ocho Skull that you see everywhere. But he wasn’t in and had just missed him, luckily his wife was there so we decided to stay a bit and catch up on the latest in the industry.
We started talking about how much bootleg tees have affected the industry and how so many companies start up and die off in one or two years.
Time flies by when you are having fun and when the conversations are interesting, but we had to take off so we said our goodbyes and promised to come back soon.

After that we had some dinner at a local Taqueria in the same street owned by a Salvadorian family, let me tell you “their Carne Asada was extremely good”.
