Pedro O'Hara was born in Tabasco, Mexico, the son of a noted Irish chef, who, during the Great Irish Potato famine of 1847, immigrated to Mexico to escape the lack of fresh ingredients for his now famous stews and entrees.
During his search for more fertile ground, Pedro's Papa settled into the lovely seaside village of Tabasco, where he fell madly in love with the beautiful daughter of a wealthy Jalapeno farmer.
With a steady supply of fresh ingredients and a ready supply of Agavé for his Tequila cravings, Pedro's Papa combined the best of his favorite homeland recipes with those of his new found home to create the wonderfully tantalizing selections that we have on the menu for you today.
Pedro's Papa was Knighted for his culinary prowess, and the family tradition continues to this day. Begun & Begorah, Olé & Bon Appetite!
Life's Short, Eat well!
