Ever been Nixtamalized??? If you don’t know what I’m talking about then you have to go and experience Tortilleria Nixtamal in Corona, Queens. Once you have laid your lips on one of their tortillas made from nixtamalized corn – you aint never going back to eating “regular” tortillas again. Fernando Ruiz and Shauna Page are the wonderful co-owners of  this cheery “Tortilleria” where the tortillas taste like they were made in heaven! Yes – they really are that good! Shauna says that on an average day, they make about 200 pounds of tortillas and the numbers go significantly higher on weekends and in the summer months. The key to their delicious tortillas is the “Masa” which is painstakingly produced fresh everyday and made from nixtamal ( treated corn). Shauna took us on a little tour of the inner workings on how they make their Masa – just as the Aztecs used to way back when…. Tortilleria Nixtamal is definitely a product of passion. Everyone here radiates such warmth and hospitality and the food is glorious. Every bite you take is fresh! fresh! fresh! That is why Tortilleria Nixtamal, is a cut above the rest. Don’t wait…..go get nixtamalized now! For pictures and more food details click on this link: http://therestaurantfairy.com/2010/02/15/tortilleria-nixtamal/

I'm very accustomed to being spoiled by authentic Mexican food...too deliciously authentic Mexican food. And while in Williamsburg this last week we decided to try this great spot out to see if it compares...and it did. Williamsburg is a hike for us from the Slope, but this little gem is worth the trip
