Pistolera was put together with the idea of bringing real authentic Mexican Food to Shanghai. There are a lot of other “Mexican” restaurants in Shanghai that offer modified and simplified versions of Mexican food. Pistolera brings the real thing with the real Mexican flavors based on authentic Mexican ingredients. Pistolera’s former Head Chef, Leonardo “Tabasco” Guerrero, is a native of the state of Sonora in Northwest Mexico. The name Pistolera was chosen to represent this cowboy culture from the Mexican side with a sexy touch.
