Marcela Valladolid is San Diegan through and through. She has passed half of his childhood there, attended the city’s school and built all his life among its famous beaches and parks. Talk to Ranch & CoastValladolid put it simply: “I have everything I will ever want in life here in San Diego.”
As a true foodie, a big part of the city’s attraction for Valladolid has been the excellent food scene. As part of a promotional campaign led with the city of San Diego, Valladolid highlighted its love for the laid-back California style that characterizes many of its favorite restaurants, as well as its emphasis on fresh ingredients. Some of his favorite authentic Mexican restaurants include Aqui es Texcoco, Romesco, and Las Cuatro Milpas.
Outside of the culinary scene, San Diego still has plenty to offer Valladolid. In addition, the drive to his father’s house in Tijuana is only 20 minutes, which allows his children to naturally develop their Mexican identity, which is very important for Valladolid. She said Parents Latina Magazine“I’m not trying to instill Mexican culture in my kids. We live it because we love it…We have to eat tamales at Christmas. Not because we’re trying to show anyone anything. whatever, but because it’s a part of who we are.”
