If you read the Lucarella’s post, you’ll know that my wife Marcela and I were lost in Oakland Park searching for Jack’s Old Fashion Hamburger House when we came across Tortilleria Mexicana. Marcela had eaten here years before during her past life in real estate. She had a bought me a Coke in a glass bottle imported from Mexico which is why I remembered the place when she mentioned it. This was years before the Mexi-Coke explosion.
When you walk into your left is the Mexican Market and straight ahead is their Deli/Meat Counter. To the right is the restaurant area (split between a counter where you can order and sit at stools or an actual sit down area).
The restaurant area was recently expanded as per Marcela’s memory. It was very limited seating before. There was also a rotisserie type of a thing-a-ma-jig aka a vertical spit spinning some Al Pastor.
Marcela says to try the Enchiladas and Tacos but everything on the menu is good and authentic. She ordered some stuff to go and I was able to not only score a few Coke bottles but a Carlos V chocolate bar.
It’s a Milk Chocolate candy bar made by Nestle, tiny but good. Check out Tortilleria Mexicana if you’re in the area or looking for “authentic” Mexican food, the menus are below:
