Lola Rosa’s MN is comprised of two sets of brothers - Mike & Erick Ervas + Ryan & Randy Limbag - who also happen to be cousins to each other who decided to get into the catering/pop-up food scene shortly after their lola (grandmother) passed away. Almost overnight, they were slingin’ their fusion Filipino street food (think chicken adobo baos, pork belly “Cebuanos” [a twist on Cubanos]) at large-scale events and was just recently named as one of the most surprising things that happened in the Twin Cities food scene by Eater. Sold out event on top of their day gigs in banking, teaching, hospitality, and music!
We talk about:
- what aspects of the food business they had to learn on their own and what they had to ask for help for
- balancing their many obligations including newborns, graduating college, and day jobs
- how they became successful despite their “un-traditional” approach to food
- their advice in finding people to support your dreams...even if they aren't family
