Tortillas

In an effort to stay true to our own goals as a company, lloyd has decided to make our own tortillas. Partnering with husband & wife duo, John & Kristi Mora, we use their family’s 100 year old recipe to bring you the best tortillas you can find between Chicago & NYC. Made with non-GMO corn, we’ve dedicated an entire room at our new restaurant to create these tortillas.We want to constantly improve & evolve to keep up with

Nixtamalization

(Points if you can say it correctly) This is an age old Aztec process of soaking corn in water treated with lime. The alkalizing process also links the corn’s proteins to one another, turns some of its oil into emulsifiers, and gelatinizes a portion of the starch. In other words, the corn is then ready to be turned into a soft dough called “masa”.

Masa can then be made into all manner of wonderful foodstuffs, including tamales, tortillas, and all their permutations: chips, arepas, gorditas, and more. Any corn product that needs to stick together and be pliable has been nixtamalized or “wet-milled.”

Our Process

In all, it’s a 16-hour process from corn kernel to fresh masa to bring you the highest quality tortilla you can find in Buffalo. GREAT things take time & cost more money, but it’s a change we’ve consciously made to keep improving every single day.
