Small, friendly Mexican eatery with a few indoor tables and picnic-style outdoor seating. Delivery and takeout available, as well as catering and a food truck for private events.
After moving to Chatham from Mexico City, Jennifer Teutli started a small catering company as a way of satisfying her own appetite for authentic Mexican fare. She eventually expanded, offering to-go meals in nearby Summit and Madison.

Build tacos, burritos, quesadillas and rice bowls with your choice of meat (chicken tinga, carnitas, beef picadillo or carne asada), seafood (chipotle-garlic shrimp) or veggies (roasted corn with peppers or crispy avocado).
