Amanda Escamilla is the founder of Tex Mex Eats. Amanda grew up on the Gulf Coast of South Texas fueled on traditional, authentic Mexican food, grilled meats, fresh seafood. Her greatest influence is her Mother’s cooking where she learned how to put passion, talent & infectious enthusiasm into every dish she makes. Amanda takes pride in her “Texachusetts” flavors that combine Mexican dishes with local New England ingredients.
Since moving to Boston over 20 years ago, Amanda has worked in a variety of restaurants where she has developed a love for sourcing local ingredients whenever possible, whether it be a whole pig from Athol, MA or tomatoes from the nearest Farmers Markets. Most recently Amanda has served on the catering team of Cambridge, MA’s legendary East Coast Grill.
