South of Mexicali Restaurant


For the last several years we have been taking Hwy 5 from the Mexicali east crossing. We almost always are traveling with our dogs so we need a restaurant where we can park with the AC running and watch the dogs. The Yocojihua restaurant at KM 12 south of Mexicali South of town is a great spot with good food and service and easy parking even when towing a trailer.

Thanks viernes,

Will try on our next trip South Mex5:

https://es-la.facebook.com/pages/Restaurante-Yocojihua/14475...

it looks delicious, the owner is a professional cooking teacher:

https://youtu.be/YdSEpMkAzSs

she mentions in the video that the food served at her "eating place" (the meaning of Yocojihua in Mayo native language) is traditional Mexicali Valley food: what people eat day to day...

Very similar to "Taqueria Parcela 12" south of San Quintin on Mex1

It is a great spot, but I couldn't find polish sausage and eggs on the menu.

I will look for it at Km. 12, and can add it to the guide as it sounds outstanding! Here are some listing north and south of Yocohijua:

Km. 0 San Luis/San Felipe highway junction, 5 miles from the Mexican border, southbound.
Km. 8 Mexico #2-D to Tijuana a toll highway.
Km. 10.5 Pemex gas station, 7-11 Market.
Km. 23 Cerro Prieto volcano is east of the highway.
Km. 31 Pemex gas station, town of La Puerta. This is the last gas station for over 90 miles southbound.
Km. 38 State Highway #4 junction. Goes east to Sonora and access to El Golfo de Santa Clara.

Also right next to the Pemex at km31 is los poblados tortas and tacos. This is a great place to stop and get some great food. Also easy parking for whatever your driving.
