Handmade Tortillas Deliver Real Taco Flavor In Seattle’s Mexican Eateries

September 29, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
A slew of Mexican restaurants in the Seattle area have spurned tortillas torn from plastic bags, turning instead to hand-made tortillas, both corn and wheat. Many eateries now employ a tortilla maker who makes them from balled up masa that is flattened and griddled. In addition to being made fresh, the tortillas contain no artificial preservatives that turn the packaged variety into “the equivalent of eating cardboard pizza.” Local foodies lament the fact that it’s still nearly impossible to find anything that resembles a freshly-made corn tortilla – redolent of corn aroma and lacking any hint of the lime used  as a preservative – in grocery stores.
