Tortilleria Nixtamal

104-05 47th Ave.
New York City , NY , United States
(718) 699-2434

At this humble-looking restaurant on a quiet side street in Queens, the superfresh tortillas take center stage, literally: Fashioned from masa that’s been house-ground earlier in the day, the rounds are cranked out of a gleaming machine right behind the glass storefront. The fillings are appropriately authentic: barbacoa steamed in maguey leaves, carnitas slow-cooked in pork fat. In 2011, owners Fernando Ruiz and Shauna Page opened a kiosk near City Hall in downtown Manhattan.
