Tacos Over Texas

April 7, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


On Sunday, April 7, 2019, The Ninfa Laurenzo Scholarship Fund (TNLSF) will hold it’s second annual fundraising event, Tacos Over Texas, in collaboration with El Tiempo Cantina and The Original Ninfa’s On Navigation. Chef’s from around the country will share their skills through a friendly competition.

Mama Ninfa paved the way for the restaurant industry in Texas with her famous Tacos Al Carbon. The challenge for our Celebrity Chef’s is to create a taco inspired by Mama Ninfa . We want to celebrate history and the transformation of Houston’s passion for multicultural food, by each chef adding their own unique flavors to their sample taco.

All proceeds from the event will benefit The Ninfa Laurenzo Scholarship Fund which helps give back to education in Houston.
