‘It’s the only thing that will work’ for Tijuana flats owner
Posted November 17, 2018 08:03:49 Tijuana is known for its stunning scenery and rich culture, but it’s also home to a flat-earthers’ paradise, one of the world’s largest and most popular flat-head fishing, as well as a number of other businesses.
“I think this is the only place in the world where you can have everything,” says chef Juan Carlos, who runs Tijuana Flat Heads.
“We have everything, and we are proud of that.”
The Flat Heads restaurant and restaurant range from traditional Spanish fare like rice and meatballs to trendy Mexican dishes like corn and poblano chile.
But Mr Juan Carlos says the main thing that draws people here is the flat-ware business.
“Everyone wants to go to Tijuana,” he says.
“And there’s a lot of people who want to go back to Mexico.”
Flat Heads owner Juan Carlos has been making his own flat-heads in his backyard for more than a decade.

We have everything.
Everything is in the house.
The house is beautiful.
We live in an old building that we have put up.
I was so proud to be in Tijuana. “
The first time I came here, I saw people from around the world.

I’ve been here ever since.
The flat-water business The Tijuana Flats is one of a number that has sprung up around the city, catering to flat-headed fishermen and flat-earning locals. “
Every single flat-water we make is from the sea.”

The business is a combination of both fishing and flatware.
“It started as a small business in Tepul, and it has grown,” says Juan Carlos.
“This is the first time we can do business in Mexico.”
Juan Carlos runs Flat Heads, which is a restaurant with a menu of traditional Spanish, Mexican and Filipino dishes, including chicken with beans and corn tortillas.
“Our main focus is on traditional fishing, but we also have some seafood dishes,” he explains.
“Flatheads is a dish that is always available in the market.
If you want a fish, it’s in the freezer, or if you want rice, it is in a box.”
A lot of the dishes are cooked in the kitchen, including fish, shrimp, salmon, trout, shrimp with beans, corn and rice.
“You can make a whole dish in two hours,” says Mr Juan.
You don’t have to wait. “
If you want it, you have to order it.

We want to provide them with the best. “

“Most of them are from the US, and they come here for the Flatheads food.”

I’m a flathead.
I have no fishing skills,” he adds.
“But I love fishing.
I love doing the work.
I enjoy living in Tijuca.
I really enjoy the environment.
I want to see my country return to what it was.”
Tijuana has been hit hard by the rise of illegal immigration from the Middle East, including from countries like Syria, Iraq and Libya, which have been plagued by violence and civil unrest.
The recent wave of migrant flows has also put pressure on Tijuana and other cities to increase their capacity to house asylum seekers, refugees and other people fleeing violence and human trafficking.
Mr Juan says his business helps offset the increased demand from migrant workers.
“With the influx of migrants, it has made the local population more worried about crime, but I also have a good business,” he admits.
Mr Carlos says it’s an easy business. “
That’s why we started Flatheads, so that the local community can take care of the migrants and help them,” he said.
