momocho is celebraing its anniversary by supporting local food trucks

My favorite modern Mexican restaurant is all grown up. And celebrating its big day in a very cool way.

Momocho is turning 5. But hold the cards and gifts. Instead, chef/owner Eric Williams wants to celebrate the occasion by supporting his fellow chefs and the local food truck scene. On Monday, May 9th from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., local food trucks, including Dim and Den Sum, Fahrenheit and Umami Moto will be stationed in the Momocho parking lot selling their goods. Momocho will open the restaurant and patio (hopefully!) for seating and will sell traditional margaritas ($5) and Tecate ($2) – but that’s it, the kitchen will be closed. In fact, Momocho staff will be off that night to enjoy the night with customers and the Happy Dog staff will be taking over the bar for the night.

This is a super casual, no reservations, cash only event. See you there!

    This is pretty selfless….. Imagine the business they would do on their anny… Kudos to Momocho for understanding the “we” attitude as opposed to the “me” attitude that seems to permeate Cleveland. PD or the news should pick this up. Amazing!!!

    This is what sharing is all about, and makes me want to support Momocho on other nights even more. Good job!

    This is a true act of selflessness and promoting your community. A true model for how the city should approach the future, whether it be through business, housing, schooling, etc… collaboration is the key.
