Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Prepare for more foot traffic, because once people try my product they will keep coming back again and again. Being new in the industry doesn't change the fact that I have a solid product.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. The tortillas are cooked and often left in a steamer. when this happens they get soggy. I do not do this and I keep the tortillas in an old fashioned container. I go one step further by crisping the tortillas on one side with light oil to withstand the juices that the meat has. most other places just overlap a soggy tortilla with another one, resulting in the same problem. I also do not overfill the tortilla so that you may enjoy all flavors without having it fall on your lap. Serving is also done on a hot dog holder instead of a plate to keep the tortillas slightly folded during presentation.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. My tacos are unique in flavor, taste, and presentation. The ingredients I use are top quality and I have mastered the technique of braising to bring out the full flavor of the meats I use.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I like being outside and talking to people. The party atmosphere, energy, and good times, gives me great joy in producing a product that people enjoy. There is truly something spiritual about what I do and how it feels to be able to give to the people.
