Best corn tortillas for retail?

PAO Dec 17, 2011 07:29 PM

Would like everyone's opinions on what retailer in the Seattle area has the best corn tortillas for sale? Locally made preferred.

    The Guadalupe Market at 128th n Roxbury in White Center has a tortilla factory inside it. They make their own tortillas there daily, as well as fresh fried chips. Also house-made salsas down the first isle closest to the tortilla station. Yum!

      For hot-off-the grill, go to Puerco Lloron, in the Pike Place Market. Though no longer on the menu, they've still sold me fresh tortillas by the dozen - a great thing to have in hand on a stroll through the market.
      Trader Joe offers a decent tortilla, in the bread section.

        Second this one. Made to order and delightful.

          No fair, though; they make it look so easy...

            Right? I've only tried a couple times. Complete failure. By the by, I think it might have been you who turned me on to these a couple years ago, so thanks for that.

        Guadalupe is on 128th & Ambaum in Burien,not Roxbury/White Center.
        They also make humongous chiccharones.

          Thanks for correcting me grangie... got Ambaum wrong. That is right at the line between Burien/White Center.
          The food counter attached also makes some awesome food to eat while your there!

          Weirdly, Safeway has started carrying a line of hand-made and probably locally-sourced tortillas. I haven't tried them yet. They're kinda pricey. For the price of a dozen you can get 300 of the kind that most people use as their stable diet. (I've even see Mexican ladies fold a tortilla and put their spaghetti with salsa bolognese in it)
