(In English) La Palapa is a Mexican gourmet restaurant that opens a window to Mexican culture through its kitchen’s delicious flavors. Restaurant owners Jesus and José Luis are experienced chefs who, through their experiences traveling from Mexico to countries in Europe and the Middle East, believe that different cultures can beautifully come together through the sharing of good meals. They decided to bring back this concept to Pittsburgh through La Palapa.

“La Palapa is now an urban Mexican restaurant where we try to show our culture through the flavors of our kitchen.” - Jesus, Co-owner


Jose Luis and Jesus received not one, but two Kiva loans that helped them to greatly increase their clientele. Their first loan went towards the opening of their first sit down restaurant and the second towards a food truck that has enabled them to increase their street presence and more effectively share their culture all over Pittsburgh through delicious food.


In addition to offering the community delicious Mexican “grandma’s recipes”, La Palapa aims to use their business to make people aware of the diversity that exists in our country and the world. Their next goal is to expand their catering services to bring diversity to more events throughout Pittsburgh.


Be sure to stop by their South Side restaurant or catch up with their food truck to treat yourself to some great Mexican flavors.

(En Español) La Palapa es un restaurant mexicano que abre puertas a la cultura mexicana a través de los deliciosos sabores de su cocina. Los propietarios Jesus y José Luis son expertos jefes de cocina que debido a sus viajes desde México a países en todas partes de Europa y el medio este, creen que las culturas diferentes pueden juntarse de una bella manera en una buena comida. Es por eso que ellos trajeron la idea de crear La Palapa Mexican Gourmet Restaurant a Pittsburgh.

“La Palapa es un restaurante urbano donde tratamos de mostrar nuestra cultura a través de los sabores de nuestra cocina.” - Jesus, Coproprietario

José Luis y Jesús recibieron no solamente uno, sino dos préstamos de Kiva los cuales les ayudaron a aumentar su clientela. Usaron el primer préstamo para la apertura de su restaurante y un camión de comida para aumentar su presencia en las calles y compartir mejor su cultura en Pittsburgh con deliciosa comida.

Además de ofrecer a la comunidad deliciosas “recetas de la abuela” mexicanas, La Palapa aspira a informar a la gente de la diversidad que existe en nuestro país y en el mundo a través de su negocio. Actualmente están persiguiendo la meta de expandir sus servicios de suminstraction de comida para aportar más diversidad en acontecimientos en Pittsburgh.
