Taco Champions: Torti Taco

Devon Wilson, Local Ingredients, restaurant

Javier Fortoso, the owner of Torti Taco, built his company on high moral and ethical values. Using local food sources has been a priority of Fortoso’s since he opened and you can taste the difference in his products. In 2018, Torti Taco took 1st place at Kalamazoo’s Tacos And Tequila festival and Detroit’s Taco Showdown! It was their first time attending both events.

They differentiate their traditional plates from the competition by using unique recipes offering Asada, Al Pastor, Carnitas, Lengua, and Seafood. Plus, Torti Taco includes many Vegetarian/Vegan options with their Impossible Beef, Soyrizo, cactus and black bean corn tacos.

Each day, their salsa bar features over 10 different kinds of salsas. Ranging from traditional Mild, Verde, and Spicy, they also have more personally curated salsas, like their pineapple and mango salsa, Arbol and Al Pastor Salsas.  These taco champions are here to stay!

Stop by Torti Taco on 5275 Beckley Rd, Battle Creek, MI 49015 and try some for yourself!
