When asked about the origin of the name, a look of love and melancholy brushed Adelina’s face. But there was also pride and a glimmer of joy. Chonita is a nickname to the proper name Asuncion. Both Adelina’s mother and another daughter were named Asuncion. Sad is the fact that both mother and daughter have passed on.
As a way to remember them and carry on their memory, Adelina and Gabriela have dedicated the name, and main logo of the restaurant, to their loved ones gone too soon.
Having been open less than a year when the pandemic reared its ugly head, Adelina and Gabriela faced obstacles that many new businesses face. Being the new kid on the block, they needed to get the word out and hope to thrive. COVID-19 put a slow down to that, but they have not given up. Adelina says, “I cannot give up. I need to make sure my children have this and hope they take it far and take advantage of this opportunity”.
The restaurant now is adhering to strict policies and its impeccable space is armored with hand sanitizer stations and socially distanced tables. Unfortunately, they do not have an official delivery service, but they do have dine in as well as take out services.
What is completely undeniable is that Adelina and Gabriela are good people offering a full dining experience with clean, fresh, authentic foods from Mexico. If you have a chance, go there and help these ladies grow their business and be a part of their dream. You will not be disappointed.
