Desde el Corazón


It all began with a dream, a food truck, and a desire to share the food that they grew up on.

After years of creating and refining their take on authentic Mexican cuisine from their beloved food truck, chef-owners Rebecca Baez and Omar Martínez were looking for a place to put down roots and feed their community.

Hoping to add to Fishtown's bustling food scene, the couple linked up with Jean-Paul Viera of Fishtown Real Estate to open their first brick-and-mortar restaurant and serve the authentic Mexican food that they have spent years loving, cooking, and sharing. 

With seating for up to 20 people, authentic menu mainstays, and mouth-watering weekly specials, La Chingonita is the go-to neighborhood spot for authentic Mexican food made from the heart.
