The “tacomotora” is an innovative way to sell tacos in Mexico city. This mobile grill-bike is taking the streets of Roma neighborhood, offering a very different recipe of the classical street tacos.

The process of nixtamal is well-known in Mexico and used to create the tortilla -the soft outer shell of the taco that holds all the ingredients inside. Maize is boiled in diluted quicklime, then the kernels are left out over night. This allows the mixture of cornmeal and maize flour to become malleable and cohesive. The use of blue corn “natural tortillas” emphasize the intense flavor of Tizne’s tacos.
