Originally, Lala’s was intended as a storefront for the Chabarrias’ catering business, but they decided to open a treat shop instead after discovering the kitchen was too small for catering.

Made with fresh ingredients, customers can expect great Mexican comfort dishes any day of the week, Edward said. In the past, pop-up dishes have included pozole, albondigas and tacos de birria. Customers can learn about the day’s dishes through the shop’s Facebook page. Both Laura and Edward said Lala’s is more of a hobby to them than a business. They have fun doing it and want customers to do the same when they visit. “We’ve been cooking our whole life, and we’ll continue to do it,” Edward said.
