Tortilleria Nixtamal, New York City

¡Hola! ¿Comó están todos? In four words, I was transported to another place. Warmth diffused in the air embraced me into a new home. Walking down the streets, I smiled as I read the Spanish signs. It felt as if my four years of studying paid off.

I didn’t know what to expect as I shuffled in with the rest into the tortilleria. Often when I see so much raw food, I get sad wondering about if all of it would be used and the afterlife of what isn’t. But as I took a bite of the tortilla, it’s history flooded into my mouth.
