Tortilleria Mexicana, with Sarah & Ted

10-29 Tortilleria Mexicana
A couple years ago we were at the border of Bushwick and Ridgewood visiting a friend who took us to a taqueria tucked inside a garage. Several years later, one New York Times article, a Health Department inspection and some renovation work, Totilleria Mexicana got legitimized. They now have a full-on kitchen, a storefront wall and real tables. At Ted's recommendation, we went with the tostadas and ordered several piled high plates of the chorizo (sausage), carne enchilada (spicy pork), carnitas (pork), pollo (chicken) and the cecina (salted beef). Considering this followed a marvelous hour of arranging suspended books with Sarah in Ted's studio, I would say we couldn't have had a more perfect combination field trip of work and pleasure.
