Best Tortillas

Anita Street Market

Mayan legend has it that tortillas were invented by an ancient peasant to please his king. Like the Mayan calendar, the tortillas at Anita Street Market are time-sensitive; in fact, they are best eaten warm, right out of the bag. The simple recipe is clearly labeled, but the secret ingredient is love—warm, soft blankety love, with the strength to hold whatever you can pile into the tortillas. Beyond the tortillas, Anita Street offers breakfast and lunch (including the best chimichanga ever), and various pastries including empanadas in flavors like banana cream, mango, apricot and many others. Take something home, or sit outside on the patio. These flour tortillas, gorditas and corn tortillas are for real.
