Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos: Bushwick

driggs Jan 26, 2011 07:17 AM

This place has gotten a fair amount of media coverage partly because of its odd placement; inside a Tortilla factory.

Although it sounds gimmicky, the food is pretty good, though not as good as at my favorite Mexican joint, Xochimilco in Sunset Park.

The crowds of hipsters can get annoying, and service is often confused and slow, but if not crowded the Tacos and taco like dishes are worth coming for, especially as the Tortillas are just so fresh.
The best is the Chorizo, the worst the Chicken.

Most seats are inside the factory, so the work goes on as you eat.

      It was ok-- really not worth the trek. It does have an annoying hispter vibe that makes it feel much less authentic than I anticipated (maybe this is an authentic Bushwick experience nowadays). When I lived in Bushwick there were taquerias within walking distance (near Flushin & Broadway) that were just as good.

      Also, Xochimilco is awesome.

        I was reminded of this place after reading of the awful tragedy at the other Bushwick Tortilla factory; Chinantla. They dont have a restaurant on the premise, but do sell packages of Tortillas
