OUR STORY

Our passion is honouring the ancient culinary traditions of Mexico. Honouring real food, made with real ingredients & no shortcuts. We invite you to taste for yourself how good real Mexican can be!

OUR PRODUCTS

We make corn tortillas staying true to the ancient Aztec recipe. That’s why our corn tortillas taste just like the ones made in the villages of Mexico. Check out our range of tortillas, tortilla chips & tostadas to buy at a grocery store or wholesaler near you.

MADE USING THE ANCIENT NIXTAMAL METHOD

“Stepping into fresh nixtamalised corn tortillas is just incomparable to any other product that we’ve seen, and here at Mamasita we’ll certainly never go back.”

Andrew Logan - Former Head Chef, Mamasita

“La Tortilleria provide an exceptional level of authenticity and freshness in their tortillas. As the product is made from fresh ground corn, the texture, flavour, freshness and nutritional quality in the product is unrivalled.”

Tim McDonald - Co-founder & Owner, Fonda Mexican Restaurants

“The best and most authentically flavoured Mexican foods in Australia… truly world-class and in a league of their own: uniquely-ancient, delicious and a prerequisite for the serious foodies, chefs and restauranteurs.”

Paul Wilson - Chef, restaurant founder & author of 'Cantina' & 'Taqueria' Mexican recipe books

“We love La Tortilleria tortillas… Fantastic service, we couldn’t make great tacos without them. We are so grateful to have access to these beautiful tortillas made from fresh masa.”

Kathy Reed - Executive Chef, Mesa Verde

“I truly believe you will not find a better tortilla this side of Mexico… I have recommended La Tortilleria to many of my chef friends and have never had any argument that they are absolutely the best. I highly recommend them.”

Mark Santos - Head Chef, Captain Melville

We do have burritos in Mexico, but they're quite different to what many Australians think of as a burrito 🇲🇽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Firstly they're either:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(a) a baby donkey (the literal meaning of 'burrito' in Spanish)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(b) a dish found in some areas of the north of Mexico: beef or beans wrapped in a small wheat tortilla. 🌯⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Both are quite different from the foil wrapped, rice, beans, meat and salads creations popular all over the US and now Australia.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Asking for a burrito in some parts of Mexico might yield unexpected results! 🤣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Blue and purple corn tortillas are almost as common in Mexico as the usual white corn tortillas. In Australia, we’re so used to just our single variety of yellow corn that it’s hard to imagine the many many varieties of corn colours that exist – including red, black, green, blue, purple, white, yellow and multi-coloured cobs. 🌈🌽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Talyudas are a popular street food in Oaxaca ~ starting with a large corn tortilla, spread with frijoles refritos, talyudas are lightly fried or baked until just slightly crispy as a base. Add your favourite carne, vegetables and cheese before going back into the oven until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is perfectly crisp. Add your favourite salads on top and avocado to complete the dish 🥑
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In Oaxaca you can find them everywhere in the already prepared food stalls, and you only have to choose the meat, or the famous Oaxaca cheese 🧀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
¡Que Rico! 😋

Not only are our tortillas and totopos delicioso, but they are certified by the Orangutan Alliance as palm oil free ✅⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Palm oil has been and continues to be a major driver of deforestation of some of the world's most biodiverse forests, destroying the habitat of already endangered species. By being palm oil free, we can make sure we aren't contributing to this deforestation, and reduce the demand for palm oil across the world 🌎⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And we aren't just palm oil free either! All our products are gluten-free, vegan and GMO free too, and able to be enjoyed by more people 💛⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

#SupportLocalSaturday 📍 MELBOURNE ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This support local post is a bit of a special one. After more than 100 days in lockdown (what month is it?!), glorious Melbourne has RE-OPENED. So instead of featuring one of our amazing amigos today, we just want to give a shout out to them ALL. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s been tough. But now it’s time for tacos with friends and time to do all the things that make Melbourne so great. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Since 1997, every year (except 2020) the rural communities of Tlaxcala organise a festival around native corn 'El festival del maiz'. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Started with local communities and nowadays communities from other states participate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The festival showcase the diversity and richness of Mexico's native corn and other seeds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And with corn all around, it would be impossible to not enjoy some traditional nixtamal tortilla making. This photo was taken by La Tortilleria founder Diana on her trip in 2018⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
