End of Summer Flavors
For most parts of the world, the end of summer is a melancholy event, greeted with heavy sighs and quiet contemplation of the busy season that is about to begin, but in the desert, this is not always the case. As the calendar page turns to September, our smiles come more readily, and our outlooks become brighter as we know the end of the scorching heat is near! Of course, we do mourn the end of summer vacations and roads that are less crowded, but when the end of summer blues hit, you can count on a visit to Modern Tortilla and a taste of our menu’s delights to cheer you up, no matter what season of the year!
Feel the Burn
No, we’re not talking about the summer sun shining down with the heat of a million fires, we are, of course, discussing the spicy deliciousness of the food we serve to happy customers all over the Valley of the Sun! It’s hard to feel depressed about anything when you start the evening out with a Mexican tradition, the elote. Featuring roasted sweet corn, cilantro lime mayo, cotija cheese, and sprinkled with the fiery flavor of smoked paprika, this south of the border version of an American summer favorite is the perfect way to say so long to the season. Tacos don’t have to be restricted to enjoying on Tuesdays only, and our Modern Mayan is one of our guests’ favorites. Created with slow braised pork in achiote, roasted tomato, garlic, pineapple, fresh avocado, pickled red onion, cotija cheese, and served in a traditional corn tortilla, this specialty of la casa is also a great way to welcome fall as we sit on the fence between the two seasons!
The dry heat of a desert summer can cause you to become quite parched; an ice-cold soda gulped straight from the glass bottle is a sure way to quench any thirst. We also serve horchata, water, and canned sodas for those who never quite appreciated a soda in a bottle. And finally, for those hard working moms who deserve a summer break just as much as the kids do, our meal prep menus offer a generous selection of end of summer specials, including a BBQ Pork Bowl, Shaved French Dip, and a fan favorite, Turkey Lasagna!
Squeeze Every Bit of Enjoyment Out of the Last Days of Summer
Even with the heat, you have to love a lazy summer day, and the best way to squeeze every bit of enjoyment out of these final days of summer is to stop by one of our Modern Tortilla food trucks today. Hope to see you soon!
