Tortelleria -- Where to buy burrito-sized tortillas?

brian j Feb 20, 2014 02:26 PM

I'd like to make some Mission style burritos and I am wondering where I can buy the best burrito-sized tortillas in LA. Looking for the best tortelleria (tortilla bakery), preferably on the east side near Echo Park/Downtown/SilverLake, but I'm willing to travel if someone swears by a baker that's a bit farther.

    Hands down the best. I will eat them unadorned. Though I have never had them steamed [ala mission style].

        A 3rd best for their tortillas both flour and corn however, their carnitas, carne asada and famed chile relleno leave a lot to be desired.
