Little Donkey

Hecho en Homewood Original Mexican food + spirits influenced by our Southern soul. Slow-smoked meats, fresh-pressed tortillas, everything made from scratch!

Why do we use the phrase “Hecho en Homewood”? Because that is truly what happens at Little Donkey, everything is made here. From the grinding of the corn for our fresh masa that we use to form and press every tortilla, to the sweet sauces that top our desserts. Everything is “Hecho en Homewood” Little Donkey was born out of our love of the vibrant flavors and brilliant combinations that traditional Mexican cooks have created for centuries.

The recipes that we have researched and tasted inspired us and gave us a glimpse into the soul of regional cooking. We started to understand and see that this is family food, comfort food, party food and soul food. We saw direct relationships to the way traditional Southern cooks celebrate, comfort and nourish with our own regional cooking and we wanted to bring it to Homewood — our home, our neighborhood.
