Henry and Adalis established La Gringa Taqueria in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2012, developing their signature dishes that are influenced by their Caribbean background, filling every meal with sweet plantains, and homemade seasoning and sauces. Their authentic display of conventional Tex-Mex continues with their cooking methods of handmade tortillas, blow torched chips, and a neighboring atmosphere. La Gringa Taqueria makes sure to stay true to their motto of serving a fresh, healthy, and sustainable meal by having fresh ingredients delivered in daily, preparing their guacamole and pico de gallo prepared every morning, serving vegetarian style rice and beans, having all their tortillas handmade by a local Taqueria, and remaining eco friendly.
