You may have eaten at a food cart inspired by a restaurant. But a restaurant inspired by food carts? That’s the concept behind Chela’s, a new family-run eatery on Maple near the corner of Liberty. Adrian Iraola wanted to share not just the food, but also the culture of his beloved home town, Mexico City. Taking inspiration from the street vendors he remembers from his youth, Adrian and his wife Lori offer tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, but without the American staples of hard shells or ground beef—just freshly made ingredients. Chela’s is located at 693 S. Maple Road, and is open 7 days from 10:30am until 9pm, except on Sundays, when it closes at 8pm. www.chelas.com.
