Tampa Tradition Since 1920

As the legend goes Crab Chilau (Cangrejo Enchilado) was first introduced by Cuban immigrants who voyaged to Tampa to work the cigar factories in the Ybor City District, once known as the Cigar Capital of the WorldDuring the 1920's Ybor City was a melting pot of ethnic fusion and culture as Cuban, Spanish, Italian and African American residents embraced the dish and put their own unique spin on it.

Similarities of this ethnic fusion also took shape in other iconic food districts such as New Orleans, San Francisco and South Carolina. That's why we believe Chilau's flavor is universal to the soulful cooking style of coastal cities, where seafood is plentifuI and the culture is diverse and vibrant. Nothing brings us all together better than a home cooked meal!
