Maya Cuisine

Maya Cuisine is one of the top five taquerias in town. The qualifications are many: the clean, bright, cozy, and welcoming space, the unbelievably friendly service, the ever-shifting array of taco filling choices, each more delicious than the last, and finally, but most importantly, the homemade corn tortillas--a rare treat indeed in the Twin Cities. All it takes is one look at the plump, randomly browned, pillowy discs to know that these aren't your average supermarket tortillas. And yes, they taste even better than they look. The chicken tinga tacos are vivacious and zingy, with real kick, and the various pork options couldn't be more succulent, tender, juicy, and satisfying. The salsa bar is fully stocked with a wide variety of toppings, including jalapenos, poblanos, salsas of varying heat, rich and creamy chipotle sauce, cilantro, onions, and lime wedges.
