Ramirez also makes tacos with ayotli, or the indigenous Nahuatl language word for a type of zucchini (also indigenous to Mexico), caramelized in a rub of Mexican cane sugar, chili and garlic.

Ramirez, a full-time San Francisco State student, sees food as a vehicle for cultural dialogue. He sources his produce from Mexican farmers and prioritizes hiring Mexican-American employees, most of whom are also in their 20s. He purposefully gave his business a hard-to-pronounce name and uses the Nahuatl words for dishes on his menu.

Ramirez genuinely wants customers to ask how Molcaxitl is pronounced (mol-ka-shee-tl) and what it means in Nahuatl (mortar and pestle). Last year, he brought a Dia de los Muertos celebration to the farmers’ market.

“I’m unapologetically celebrating the culture for truly what it is, even though it’s tricky to pronounce,” he said. “I want people to feel like they can experience the culture and learn about it.” instagram.com/molcaxitl.kitchen/
