Adelitas Cocina y Cantina
"La Adelita" is the folk tale of a young woman who fell in love with a sergeant during the Mexican Revolution, left her humble home behind, and traveled with him and his regiment. "La Adelita" became an archetype of a woman warrior during this era. She prepared meals, mended clothing, cared for the wounded, and even fought in battles against Mexican government forces. With the passage of time, the word “Adelita” came to be used for all of the soldaderas, marking their place in history as a vital force in the Mexican revolutionary war efforts. The term “La Adelita” symbolizes a brave, altruistic woman with an abundance of strength and courage. Adelitas Cocina y Cantina is a dual-family owned and operated business that brings traditional Mexican fare to the Platte Park neighborhood. Our collaborative effort brings you a comfortable atmosphere to enjoy this traditional Mexican food from Michocan, Mexico. We are a family-orientated restaurant, but after 9pm we dim the lights and provide you with a warmer, relaxing environment. We chose the name Adelita to pay tribute to our mothers. They have inspired us to share with you our traditional family recipes and refreshing cocktails.
