Modern Tortilla has been taking the Phoenix area by storm over the past few years by providing freshly made Southwestern cuisine from one of the city’s favorite restaurants in Phoenix. Building your own tacos or burritos with over 20 different fresh toppings is very popular, but there are some specific meals on the menu that people come back for time and time again. The customers have spoken, and the following three menu items are the favorites at Modern Tortilla.
Elote – Modern Tortilla Food Truck
This appetizer is great to share but can also provide a quality meal. This awesome twist on a Mexican classic starts by grilling two half cobs of corn to perfection. After that, they are topped with fresh lime juice, mayo, cotija cheese, and smoked paprika. This is certainly one of the most unique and delicious items on the menu, so no trip to Modern Tortilla is complete without ordering this classic.
The Modern Mayan
The Modern Mayan comes with two of Modern Tortilla’s most popular tacos along with one side. The tacos start with corn tortillas that are made from scratch every single day. The next thing you will notice is the pork that has been slowly braised in achiote all day. Then comes the amazing mixture of flavors provided by roasted tomatoes, garlic, pineapple, fresh avocado, pickled red onion, and cotija cheese. All the ingredients are fresh and of the highest quality, making for an incredible and unique meal.
The Steak Burrito
This is a Modern Tortilla classic that features one of our chili flour tortillas, which is one of many unique starts to a meal. Like with the Modern Mayan tacos, the next most crucial ingredient is the meat—perfectly marinated carne asada. This incredible base is expanded upon with white onions, shredded cheddar cheese, cilantro, lime crema, lettuce on the side, and fresh jalapenos.
These are a few of the most popular items on the menu, but there are so many good options that there is really no telling which one will become your favorite. One thing is for certain: You will not regret getting anything on the menu. The food is totally mobile, so the food truck is the only place to get it.
