Alex & Antonia
Alex met Antonia in Mexico City, where the married and started raising a family. In 1990 they decided to move with their family to the United States. Alex worked in numerous restaurants honing his culinary knowledge and skills with the goal of eventually opening his own restaurant and bringing authentic Mexican cuisine to the area.
His hopes were realized in 2001 when they opened La Malinche Mexican Restaurant in downtown Rahway with Alex as the chef and Antonio taking up the role of hostess and waitress. La Malinche quickly became known, not only for their excellent fare, but also for their warm & friendly atmosphere.
With the ever-increasing amount of customers, it wasn’t long before the daily tasks became too much for just the two of them. Their son Fidel, who was already aware of his Father’s unique recipes, joined the staff as the assistant chef. To round out the workforce they hired three exceptional servers: Rosemary, Maria, and Michelle.
Since opening the Restaurant Alex and Antonia have continually sought to improve and perfect the dining experience at La Malinche. They have worked hard to make certain you love the food, enjoy the warm atmosphere, and appreciate the friendly, courteous service.
