About the event

Find us in Shaw for this weekend meetup with Chef Karla Alonzo, a Guatemalan immigrant who escaped homophobia almost 20 years ago to start a restaurant and has earned a minor celebrity status in D.C.

Join in and learn directly from the Chef all about her migration story, the start of her chef journey, and her dreams for the future as a queer business woman.

This event will consist of:

  • An open Q&A session directly with Chef Alonzo
  • A live cooking demonstration from the Chef
  • The opportunity of tasting an amazingly authentic Guatemalan meal


Maltiox is a Guatemalan restaurant in Shaw which opened in March 2024 and serves hard-to-find, traditional Guatemalan dishes, including kaq-kik and chojín to pepián and churrasco. Maltiox means "thank you" in K'iche', an indigenous language of Guatemala and Chef Alonzo's mother tongue.
