Corn Tortillas in Albuquerque
My dad is a transplant from San Diego, and is having a miserable time finding quality corn tortillas. (I've tried to talk him into making his own, but his age and stubbornness seem to preclude this.)
PLEASE, if anyone has ANY source for even halfway-decent corn tortillas in the Albuquerque/Sandia Park area, I would be forever grateful.
Wow! Have I got the place for your dad. The best corn tortillas in Albuquerque are at Tortilleria Cuauhtemoc on Bridge Street SW. In researching my book, Culinary New Mexico, my husband and I did the rounds, tasting and rating tortillas. Cuauhtemoc won hands down. They are made fresh throughout the day and are sold only in packages of 36. That's a lot of tortillas, but you can freeze those you can't use immediately. A caution: if you don't speak Spanish, you'll be reduced to charades. Not really a problem.
If you're seeking flour tortillas, those at the Frontier Restaurant on Central SE are tops--freshly made throughout the day and very light. Second place for flour tortillas was Dos Hermanos on 4th Street NW. They're huge and somewhat more expensive than most of their bretheren.
