Calaca Mamas was founded by sisters Angela & Mariam El Haj, who are second-generation restauranteurs in Southern California. The sisters love and passion for the food industry started at a very young age when they began working in the restaurants their parents owned. Throughout the years their roles and duties shifted but one thing always remained consistent - their love for bringing people and their families together surrounded by delicious food. They originally acquired the space for its potential but in the search for a concept, nothing was quite right. That's when they knew their dream of creating a one-of-a-kind concept was about to come true.
