I have to give a shout out to the ladies that make this taqueria tick, my tortilleras, my tortilla makers.
This small cadre of ladies perform like finely tuned machines, hammering out a couple thousand fresh tortillas for the eager taco scarfing masses that frequent Big Star everyday. Simply put, no tortilleras=no tacos.
Pictured is Maria Salcedo, the grand dame of the crew. Her husband custom made a couple of tortilla presses (also pictured) for Big Star, for which I am very grateful. Always smiling, I hope I possess her spirit when I am her age.
Thanks Maria, Mari, Monse, Carmen, and Griselda. Much overdue.
