El Consome de Morelos

Our restaurant is named after the city where my partner was born, Cuernavaca Morelos. The recipes are from my mother-in-law who taught my husband to cook and prepare meals since he was a kid and would tell him what spices to add to certain stews. We started in 2017 with a small food truck in West Colfax. We became more known in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic because we added DoorDash and Uber which increased sales and helped people get our food despite not living nearby. We have a specialty favorite amongst our clients of birria tacos with Morelos style broth. I feel very proud to be from Tsumtepeque, El Salvado. In my country, we have a very good president who has changed the system for the better and has done a lot of work to control crime and restore peace. It wasn’t always like that because my father fled El Salvador in a time of war and my family went first to Costa Rica and then to Nicaragua so my brothers could study and have more opportunities. Having a business is not easy. It takes a lot of sacrifice to maintain food prices and you must be very creative because all the ingredients and product costs have increased in price. Previously, a box of cilantro with 30 bunches would cost $5.00 – $6.00, but now you pay up to $17.00. Everything has gone up in price and so it’s been pretty difficult. But luckily, we live in a state where there is a lot of available work and there is a strong diversity of people, so I think that makes the recession not feel so bad. We’ll be here waiting for you at our south Sheridan restaurant or our one on Colfax!
