That was my first guess, although their Avenida Revolucion probably isn't as famous. But the clues all fit.

I guess you'd have to travel to both in order to know those lil' details huh?

I have traveled to both which is why I think the clues fit both cities.

The Caesar Salad was invented at Caesar's Restaurant on Revolución and 5th in Tijuana. Juárez's contribution to food is the burrito. And the Revolución in Juárez is a tiny little alley south of Av. de la Raza, not a major shopping street that most people, at least in the West, have heard of.

Caesar salad wasn't in the original clue, it was "border town" and it didn't say Revolucion was a major shopping area, so I still maintain the original clue fit either city. Glad QM changed the clue to better clarify.

Changed "border town" to "Caesar salad", which originated in Tijuana!

Ulysses founded Lisbon? Well, that's my new fact for the day. Thanks QM.

Why is "fog" a clue? is it referring to "The Great Smog"?

There was a song once about 'A foggy day in London town' that sort of stuck, nowadays of course London is one of the least polluted great cities in the world.

And then there is the American coat manufacturer, London Fog, so apparently fog has long been associated with London, at least here in the US.

I originally assumed it was a misspelling of Phileas Fogg's surname, for some reason.

Seriously? Having some better options for a Mexican city, and you choose TJ? I mean, you have a true world city, two big resort cities, an emerging but economically strong city and the capital of mariachi (in other words, 5 better options), and yet you choose a city which only those in Tijuana and San Diego (and those who care about the Xolos) do care?

Those other cities get plenty of opportunities. This one flummoxed me in the quiz but glad to learn more about TJ.

If the clues for Tijuana were "tequila", "sexo" and "marijuana", I would have gotten that one too

pizza and vesuvius are enough to get Naples, but i never heard that three flavoured ice cream was a specialty of that city, and i'm italian. can somebody explain the connection please?

Neapolitan ice cream is a tricolor dessert believed to have been brought to America by Italian immigrants; spumoni may have been an original flavor making the three stripes resemble the Italian flag. Check it on Wikipedia.

I learned about Ulysses founding Lisboa and Tijuana inventing Caesar salad. Now can someone tell me what is famous about Montreal bagels?
+1
level 75
Oct 31, 2017
Montreal-style bagels are made differently from New York-style bagels. They are sweeter and they are always baked in a wood-fired oven.

No one has pointed out that there are thousands of cities missing from this quiz, missing a golden chance to complain. Wait.. strike that. They did complain about Tijuana.

Who classified Tijuana as a world city? Might be known in the americas, but I'd say a good 95% of europeans and asians wouldn't get that one. When I think world cities in America I think New York, LA, SF, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Rio, Montevideo, Santiago - not Tijuana. No one thinks Tijuana.
