This Restaurant Hires Abuelitas Instead Of Chefs
If you are a fan of your abuela’s cooking, grab a tissue because you are about to get all the feels and llorar y llorar. Then you’re gonna get super hungry.
So, there’s a restaurant on Staten Island, New York City called Enoteca Maria that has harnessed the collective cooking powers of grandmothers from around the world.

Qué chef, ni qué nada. Enoteca Maria doesn’t need no stinkin’ professionally trained chefs because abuelas do the cooking.

Enoteca Maria has two kitchens. One is always headed by an Italian nonna.

Each nana serves a menu featuring foods from her own region. There are abuelas representing Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and on and on.
Now, watch this video that will get you all choked up because abuelas have always been in charge of the best kitchens.
At this restaurant, grandmas are the queens of the kitchen
