Hand Pressed Tortillas

The foundation of any great taco is the tortilla, and SOHO Taco doesn’t settle for anything less than the best. Their commitment to fresh, high-quality ingredients is evident in their use of hand-pressed tortillas. Unlike store-bought tortillas, which can be dry, flavorless, and prone to cracking, hand-pressed tortillas boast a unique texture and taste.

Hand-pressed tortillas are the traditional method of preparing tortillas, adding a touch of authenticity to your taco experience. The act of pressing the dough creates air pockets, resulting in a slightly puffed tortilla with a more complex flavor profile. The process of hand-pressing tortillas creates a slightly thicker and chewier texture compared to store-bought varieties. This allows the tortilla to cradle the fillings without breaking, ensuring a perfect bite every time.
