Exploring Life & Business with Adrian Perez of Eriberto’s Latin Cuisine

Today we’d like to introduce you to Adrian Perez. 

Hi Adrian, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Well, it all started in my teenage years I always watched my dad and mom cooked some amazing food, especially my dad. My dad is Puerto Rican so seeing dish from the island was amazing. But he also did BBQ he loved to BBQ. I wanted to learn how to cook so I was like maybe I should watch him more lol. My dad always wanted to start a food truck or a catering with him and my mom. But that dream has ended due to his murder on 02/01/2018. The world as I knew was turned upside down, in 2020 I decided it was time to honor my daddy. With the help of my wife, I begin to cook, after great feedback, I started my culinary training at Dorsey College in Roseville MI. While there I was inspired to start my own business and do something my dad and now I wanted, so that’s where Eriberto’s Latin Cuisine came to birth. We cook every Saturday making amazing tacos and as a private chef, I recreate the Latin flare. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Main struggle is building clientele and getting a food truck which is our goal. 

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
We are a fairly new business, looking to bring Latin flavors to Detroit and Pontiac. It’s our mission to create and recreate the dishes that are customs to Puerto Rican/Mexican cuisine with a twist. As a chef, it’s my duty to bring families together, bring smiles and happy stomachs. As a personal chef, I bring fine dining to your home on any occasion. I’m skilled in everything even vegetarian dishes. On Saturdays I taco days open to the public. Where I prepare my signature birria’s and my dessert tacos. I’m known for the traditional birria’s with the birria consommé, cheeseburger burrito with special chef sauce, and cheesecake taco. 

Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
My number one supporter who help me start this business and to start my chef career is my wife Shaniya Perez. She is the backbone of my career. Friends and family that continue to support, enjoy and shout out my dishes. Close friend that went as far as gifting me items. my mother and mother in-law my biggest cheerleaders
