homemade tortillas if you order right

If you want an excellent taco that comes with a hand-made tortilla, go NEXT DOOR to Maria's, on Union and 4th Ave in Brooklyn. Anyone remember the name? It's a hole in the wall right next to Maria's Bistro, a
large mexican place that does a pretty good fresh guacamole. Anyhow, this little mom and pop joint, if you order the home-made corn cakes (tinga something or other) will make the tortilla by hand and put some tasty
stuff in it. Order the one with chipotle chicken, not the spinach. The owner is from Oaxaqua, but also has Puebla roots. This
comes with a warning...the home-made corn cakes (read [tortillas]) are
the only reason I go. I can't remember what they're called on the menu, but you'll figure it out. The ordinary tacos are not spicy enough for me, though the carnitas aren't bad.
