5 Reasons To Try Modern Tortilla

Never one to sit on his laurels, Phoenix’s own Chef Tom D’Ambrosio might be famous for his epic burgers, but we want you to know something: the dude knows tacos, too.

One of the three co-founders of Aioli Burger, D’Ambrosio and his childhood friends are at it again, reinventing the street taco with their new food truck Modern Tortilla. Featuring a playful mix of southwestern flavors and classical culinary training, their take on street tacos, burritos, and quesadillas has to be experienced to be believed (you don’t just “taste” these delicious dishes). Here are five things that make Modern Tortilla a must-try for any taco fan:

Innovative Traditions

With piping hot tacos, overstuffed burritos bursting with flavorful ingredients, and delicious sides and appetizers, Modern Tortilla has it all. Focused on delivering traditional Mexican flare in its dishes, the menu also gives diners the chance to experiment with new flavors and innovating toppings and ingredients.

Flavor Infusions

From fresh toppings to succulent meats, this taco truck packs a punch. When choosing your dish you can enjoy hot and tasty chicken tinga, pork pastor, grass-fed skirt steak, or lime-marinated fish that melts in your mouth. Top off your taco with exotic fixings like pineapple salsa, habanero salsa, roasted pepitas, tomatillo salsa, or roasted peppers, and then marvel at the intricate flavors that Chef Tom is somehow able to inject into his cilantro-lime infused tortillas.


Even with a menu this extensive and delicious, here it is all about you. Choose from one of the specialty tacos like the Modern Mayan (chipotle-infused tortilla, pork pastor, avocado, pickled red onion, cotija cheese) or make your own. The choice is yours. Whether you grab a combo and load up on delicious sides like Elote (roasted corn with cilantro lime mayo) or Spanish rice with paprika and stewed tomatoes, or simply snack on their fresh tortilla chips and fire roasted salsa – you’ll be in heaven before you know it.

Mobile Eats

The Modern Tortilla truck can be found all over Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, and Chandler (check the calendar for menus and locations), at Food Truck Friday in downtown Phoenix, or you can book them for your own private event. Whether for an office lunch or a birthday party, you’ve never seen happier faces than when the vibrantly colored food truck pulls up and people start lining up for a delicious taco buffet.

Sweet Eats

Modern Tortilla has something for your sweet tooth, too. Cool off with a refreshing horchata (cinnamon-infused rice milk) and treat yourself to one of their signature crème-filled churros drizzled with Mexican chocolate and cinnamon sugar.

Offering up incredible flavors and innovative takes on classic Mexican street food, Modern Tortilla is an experience you won’t want to miss. Track down the truck today – or go nuts and reserve yourself a private taco tasting. We won’t judge. (But hey, maybe invite us?)
