Europe’s First Organic Tortilleria

In Berlin we use the traditional Nixtamal method to produce the best Tortillas around. We start on the fields in Vorpommern, Northern Germany,  where our friends BioBoden grow beautiful corn that is than carefully cooked and milled to Masa in our volcanic stone mill. Finally shaped and baked on a Comal daily fresh - most authentic Tortillas are there for you and us.

 

Nixtamalisation

This is the genius, magic, ancient and superior method of cooking corn. Applied by indigenous cultures of the Americas since centuries, cooking and letting the whole corn soak in water with lime stone has many advantages: it loosens the outer layer of the kernel, (that normally gets stuck between your teeth), it splits up proteins and makes them digestible and makes several nutrients available to your body, adds calcium, gives the tortilla flexibility, acts as natural preservative and gives it the authentic flavour. Corn that is not treated this way just runs untouched through your digestive system.

We only use and offer Nixtamal.  It is superior for your body and tongue: Nixtamal Masa vs dry masa flour; think sourdough bread vs commercial toast or potato mash from scratch vs powder out of the pack.

Tortillas

Our Tortillas are produced daily starting from scratch with nixtamalized corn turned into Masa. That’s the base for countless Mexican specialties: like Tacos, Tostadas, Quesadillas, Empanadas, Tlayudas, Memelitas, Tamales… Tortillas baked on our Comales (castiron discs over flames) they can vary in size and thickness. No preservatives or softeners are used but only corn water and lime. This makes it a wholegrain product with excellent nutritional value, besides it´s gluten free.

Tostadas

Besides Tortillas we turn Masa Nixtamal into Tostadas . Premium crunch and flavour, spiced up with Chipotle, Chocolate, toasted Sesame or Classic as a base for Ceviche and Salsa. Skip the greasy regular Chips and do yourself good with approx 90% less fat, cause they are baked and not fried up.

 
 

About

 

Tlaxcalli ist eine Hommage an die Mexikanische Gastronomie mit ihrem endlosen Potential und wunderbaren Facetten. Trotz ihres Status als UNESCO Weltkulturerbe ist Sie zu oft bastardisiert – meist mit viel zu viel Käse. Das zu ändern ist unser Ziel, beginnend mit echten Tortillas als wichtigste Basis für viele ihrer Gerichte. Obendrauf verbinden wir authentische Technik und Konzepte von der Seite  mit den besten Zutaten dieser Seite des Ozeans bei Caterings und Events.
