The Chilau brand was inspired by the traditional dish known only in Tampa and Florida coast called Crab Chilau. 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 World. During 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.
