Tradicional reinventado

While honoring cherished favorites from Mama’s family recipes that have been filling Belltown bellies since 1974 (like the Elvis Burrito and Mama's O.G. Salsa), Mama’s Cantina is approaching things with a braver, more international flare. Inspired by LA’s vivid food truck scene, and the classics of Mama’s native Mexico City, we’re serving up a variety of tacos, nachos as tall as the Space Needle, quesadillas, burritos, and weekly whole roasted pig. The Cantina offers blended and scratch margaritas from our selection of 40 tequilas and mezcals as well as your favorite cervezas and micros.
