La Flore de Mexicali is a Mexican restaurant in Santa Ana. They make tortillas that are fantastic; they have enough tensile strength to contain even the wettest of guisados, an appealing slaked corn taste without the bitterness of unleached cal, and they fold easily. When crisped for quesadillas, they don't color darkly, but that tensile strength turns into chewiness that provides some interest to what's just tortillas and cheese. The masa regular--quite expensive for masa at $1.00 a pound--makes even better tortillas than the machine, and can be patted into gorditas and sopes without having to knead water or lard into the masa.
