WELCOME TO
LORENA’S CANTINA

Lorena’s Cantina is the fruit of several years of family and team hard work. The modern concept emerges as a necessity to explore new flavors and incorporate them with the delicious and traditional Mexican food that we all enjoy. It is a fusion of the traditional recipes that have been inherited from generation to generation with their unique culinary touch.

The restaurant is a family business, in which Lorena and Enrique Moreno are the leaders of this new project. Their children Christian and Enrique Jr have been working shoulder to shoulder with them to conceptualize and materialize this dream.

 

     IT ALL STARTED HERE…

As a young man, Enrique picked apples, cherries, and onions in the Pacific Northwest. His father cooked in a Mexican restaurant in California, which gave Enrique his first view of restaurant life. At 19, he traded the fields for the kitchen. When his family moved to Texas, Enrique cooked at his father’s side, first at his uncle’s restaurant and then at various popular restaurant chains. Being a restaurateur must have run in Enrique’s family, as his uncle owned two Mexican food restaurants in Plano, Texas.

Lorena started making tortillas when she was just eight and living in Colima, Mexico. She learned the skill from her mother, using only her hands to mix the dough of maize flour and water. She would pat little round cakes and press them flat using a wooden tortilla maker. Lorena and Enrique moved to New Hampshire shortly after getting married.
