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 know this is a step out of our usual posting about tacos and delicious Mexican food, but we feel it’s important at a time like this to use the privilege of our voice and this platform of caring followers we’ve built to share this… The following is a list of indigenous Australians that have died in police custody in the last 4 years alone. We want to acknowledge their lives, and not let their deaths go unnoticed or forgotten.
[WARNING: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are advised the following list contains names, ages and locations of people who have died.]
Veronica Marie Nelson Walker, 37, VIC 🖤 Kumanjayi Walker, 19, NT 🖤 JB, 30, WA 🖤 Alf Deon Eades, 46, WA 🖤 CD, 16, WA🖤 TS, 17, WA 🖤 Mr Yeeda, 19, WA 🖤 Nathan Reynolds, 36, NSW 🖤 Cherdeena Wynne, 26, WA 🖤 TK, 39, QLD 🖤 Patrick Fisher, 31, NSW 🖤 Jonathan Hogan, 23, NSW 🖤 Tanya Day, 55, VIC 🖤 TMH, 47, WA 🖤 Tane Richard Chatfield, 22, NSW 🖤 KG, 47, SA 🖤 JLT, 39, NT 🖤 Eric James Whittaker, 35, NSW 🖤 PR, 50, SA 🖤 Chad Riley , 40, WA 🖤 TAS, 35, NSW 🖤 Jordan Anderson, 23, WA 🖤 RPN, 62, NT 🖤 KJ, 35, NT 🖤 SB, 44, WA 🖤 Wayne Fella Morrison, 29, SA 🖤 JBM, 44, NT 🖤 GLW, 41, VIC 🖤 VB, 31, NT 🖤 EJM, 69, QLD 🖤 Rebecca Maher, 36, NSW 🖤 FJG, 35, WA 🖤 Steven Freeman, 25, ACT 🖤 WMM, 58, QLD 🖤 RJG, 41, NT 🖤 GWA, 31, SA 🖤 EY, 70, NT 🖤 PMB, 42, QLD 🖤 JR, 37, NT 🖤 CGG, 56, WA 🖤 #SayTheirNames
More than 400 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have died in custody since 1991. Please learn more - this database is an attempt to track these deaths and bring attention to them, most of which go unreported in the media- see the link in our bio for more and remember: “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor” – Desmond Tutu.
