Established in 1994 by his parents, Jose and Margarita, Alonzo is now owner and chef. Many family members are employed at the restaurant as well.
Like many of the chefs who share their recipes at the market, Alonzo said Margarita’s aims for the freshest ingredients possible.
They showed the crowd how to make salsa the way it’s been done in Mexico, by smashing the jalapenos and roasted tomatoes together with a mortar and pestle called a molcajete.
They also demonstrated Chicken Tortilla Soup, which is on the menu at Margarita’s.
Doesn’t that look delicious? Margarita’s is not only my favorite Mexican restaurant in West Michigan, but it’s also the closest one to my home. We are so lucky to have this family-owned and operated authentic Mexican eatery in Holland.
