Was recently referred to the Plascencia Group for excelent selections of restaurants in Tijuana. Well established group headed by Baja-Med Chef Javier Plascencia, this restaurant presents the overall best the family has to offer. While Mision 19 heads the group list of several restaurants in Tijuana, Valle de Guadalupe and San Diego, including Caesers on Revolucion, Casa Plascencia has been often noted by friends as the most consistent and varied in dishes available.
Chichulines and ajo blanco with fresh bread to start, and bebidas well presented, we were off to a great start. Plates included arroz negro, a black wild rice dish loaded with pulpo and calimare, lingua in a wine sauce (Madeira) and fettuccine alfredo with camarone in an actual cheese sauce. All plated by the chef in proper serving sizes and each delicious in their own way as opposed to having a common thread in flavor found in so many chain restaurants.
Service - also excellent. That said, as a left handed person I tend to place cutlery and drinks to my left. This was disrupted by the assistant masero a couple times who moved my place settings to the right side of my seat. Our primary server was very pleasant and very attentive, ensuring the meal was a joy for all with each serving.
Dessserts were delicious and apparently not frozen excepting the ice creams. Creme de broulee, mousse and others including fresh warm churros were a fine finish to a mid-day birthday celebration.
This is an upper mid-range restaurant in Tijuana, probably kid friendly although very young youngsters may be out of place. While a selection of mariscos are offered it is not seen as a seafood location.
