ISO great tortilla chips!

I am looking for the kind of tortilla chips typically served in a Mexican restaurant, not what is available on grocery store shelves. The ones that are a triangle of deep-fried tortilla. East end preferable. Thanks!

        Have any of you had Alba Lisa tortilla chips? Would be a lot easier for me, transportation-wise, as I can buy them at Rowe Farms locations. Or, do you know if La Tortilleria tortilla chips are available anywhere east? (I've checked and all three of their locations are very west for me, but still maybe worth the drive...)

          I discovered Alba Lisa chips at Fiesta Farms and they are wonderful, especially the chilli ones. Has anyone tried Alba Lisa's salsas? Especially the tomatillo and the creamy jalapeƱo? Those are addictive.

      2. I like the Mad Mexican chips.

        Available here:

        Not all stores carry everything so call in advance to make sure your nearest has them.

          I ended up at Rowe Farms in the Beaches to buy the Alba Lisa chips, and they had Mad Mexican too, so I bought both. Prefer Mad Mexican. Thinner chip. I also love the Mad Mexican salsas. If I can get to Kensington, I have to try the tortilla chips from La Tortilleria!
