Video Spotlight: Ninfa Laurenzo
I’m always happy to tell people that the popular fajita-style tacos served at most Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurants in the U.S. are thanks to the local Ninfa’s restaurant chain. Specifically, Ninfa’s original proprietor Ninfa Laurenzo is commonly-credited with creating the style of food that’s so popular nationwide.
While the Laurenzo family lost the Ninfa’s chain before the family matriarch passed away, they are still in the restaurant business. In fact, you can visit one of the El Tiempo restaurants just across the street from The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation.
You can learn more about Ninfa and her legacy through this video, courtesy of The Heritage Society.
