Mexicali (Mexicalli)

"Mexicali” (much less frequently spelled “Mexicalli") is from the names “Mexico” and “California.” There is a town in Baja California (Mexico) called Mexicali. “Mexicali” is part of the name of several restaurants that serve “Cal-Mex” or “Tex-Mex” food.

See also “Texicali (Texicalli).”


Wikipedia: Mexicali
Mexicali is the capital of the state of Baja California, Mexico as well as the capital of the municipality of Mexicali. Situated along the state’s northern border with the U.S state of California, Mexicali is the northernmost city in Latin America, located at 32°40′0″N, 115°28′0″W. The city itself had a 2005 census population of 653,046, whereas the municipality’s population was 855,962. The population is constantly growing due to the number of Maquiladoras in the area and migrational aspects. It is the 13th largest municipality in Mexico as of the Census 2005.

Founded on March 14, 1903, Mexicali is adjacent to the city of Calexico, California, which lies directly across the US border. The link is emphasized by the way each city’s name combines the words “California” and “Mexico.”

Juan’s Mexicali
WELCOME TO JUAN’S MEXICALI

Mexicali, the capital city of Baja, inspired the “half-Mexi” “Half-Cali” menu you’ll find at Juan’s Mexicali. You could say We bring a whole new Baja approach to Fresh Mexican food with variety and taste you won’t find anywhere else.

If you’re looking for a great burrito restaurant, you’ve come to the right place. We offer a variety of delicious burritos in two sizes: regular and pequeno (which means “just a little smaller” in Juan’s-speak). We start every burrito with a handmade tortilla, pressed and grilled right in front of you.

We’re also much more than just a burrito restaurant. We offer exciting new “Cali” items like Mahi Mahi tacos, California Turkey Wraps, Three-Cheese Spinach & Artichoke Quesadillas, and Salmon Citrus Salads. And, where else can you try the asian-inspired Thai Peanut Wrap or the popular Cubano grilled wrap?
