Quinto (5th) Festival de Chile en Nogada!

  • Aug 24, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Every year, we go to this fest and every year someone tells me how they feel safe. This TJ fest has become a group favorite for the few who have been willing to join in. Will you be one of them this year?

The chile en nogada is a dish made especially for August & September. The green stuffed chile is covered with white nogada* sauce, then finished off with red granada* seeds.

*Nogal = walnut tree. Nogada is walnut sauce, the result of a very complicated process, usually taking a couple of days at home!

*Granada = pomegranate. So, yes, the awesome city in Spain that you're thinking of right now is named for the fruit of fertility! Join us for a short day trip. You'll meet other members of the group, see another side of the world (just half an hour away), and we'll celebrate this "national independence dish" together!

Note: the dish is about $10 and drinks are extra.  To beat the border traffic, we'll leave TJ at about 2pm.


For Mapquest: Old Town Trolley Station is at 4005 Taylor St., San Diego, CA 92110.

    Orville, do you know the name of the restaurant that has this dish? I'm coming with a few friends and we may leave later around noon, would like to meet you all there if possible. So no need to include us in the car/driving head count.

      Robin, it's not a restaurant - more of an outdoor festival. There will be booths for trying different versions of the dish at the intersection of Avenida Revolución and Calle 8 (it goes up to 9th Street, too). If you and your friends are coming later as a separate group, you can meet us there. I'll be wearing a brown hat and yellow shirt. :-)
