New Yorker Article Celebrates The Local Tortilla Scene

SA Tortilla Article

Gustavo Arellano, taco connossieur and Mexican food sabe lo todo, celebrated our local tortilla scene in a recent article in the New Yorker. He argued for the importance of the flour/corn tortilla discussion for understanding migration patterns and forms of belonging in the United States. And he gave a shout out to Las Paloma, a San Antonio-based tortilleria.
