Tortilleria Nixtamal

Absolutely worth the trip to Corona for artisan Mexican food in a place that makes its own tortillas with special corn they order and roast it themselves inhouse to make the masa. It was love at first sight when I saw the cute outside porch as well as a sort of back yard where a big pot of pork was cooking. The interior is also colorfully cute where the lovely tortilla press works. Here the owner lovingly creates authentic chow in this Corona corner. I ordered the taco al pastor which is sort of a pork souvlaki cooked on a spit squeezed in with fresh pineapples. WOW! Different pieces of superflavorful pork, some tastefully fatty with slivers of pineapples, onions, and cilantro on their fresh tortilla- sabroso. Next I ordered the salsa combo which was a green, a red and guacamole in a pretty trio dish with fresh fried chips. Delish- warning- chips here are outta the park and super addictive. A spicy pork and chicken tamale left me stuffed and sated.
