New Tortilleria opening in Corona

corgi | Jan 6, 2009 07:41 AM

I stumbled over a new place, Tortilleria Nixtamal about a block away from Leo's Latticini (Mama's) in Corona. It's not open yet. I spoke to the owner and she told me that they're waiting for Health Department certification of their Mexican made tortilla machine which is proudly installed in the front window for all to see. They plan to sell tortillas, fresh masa, tamales and drinks when they open up, with a further expansion of the kitchen to a full scale taqueria hopefully just a few months away. The owner seemed to me to be a first or second generation Mexican-American drawing on her heritage to start an artisanal food business. At any rate, the whole thing looks promising. As I am in that neighborhood with some frequency I plan to keep an eye on this place.

Tortilleria Nixtamal
104-05 47th Ave.
Corona, NY 11368
