Tortilleria Los Gemelos and blue corn tortillas

adamclyde | Jul 22, 200808:30 PM    

Just a quick note that Los Gemelos in Port Chester is now making and selling blue corn tortillas. A pound costs $1.50. I didn't get a chance to try them, but I haven't seen freshly made blue corn tortillas around these parts, so it was a nice find. I prefer their regular tortillas to anything you can get in a mass supermarket, so I'm hopeful these will be the same.

Interestingly, I didn't notice them on their menu in any form, though I may have missed it.

While on the topic of Los Gemelos... it had been a good 6 months since I'd been there. I think that's the longest I'd been away from there since I first went 6 or 7 years ago. Anyhow, their prices have gone up. Tacos now range from $2.75 to $3.50. Burritos are $7.50 and Tortas are also $7.50. Now, to be fair, the torta I had today was absolutely HUGE (as are their burritos, I think). And, I must confess, their carnitas torta was as good as ever. But it is getting pricier. They continue to make the place look a little spiffier inside, with a new bamboo ceiling, covering the last exposed surface of the factory insides that used to adorn the whole place.

Now if they could just make their booths a little more comfortable to sit in... Oh well, the food is still great.
