A visit to Mercadito Hispano Nomar which is a Hispanic market held at NoMar International Market at the northwest corner of 21st and Broadway brought me to yet another new vendor I’ve never been to. Tortas Mary is someone I’ve heard of in discussion groups but have never been able to find them. I’ve heard great things about their tacos and happened to come across them at the market.

To my surprise, they accepted card which gave me additional incentive to try them out.
The menu was very simple. It considered of three main dishes: tortas, quesadillas and tacos. While common sense would tell me to order a torta given their name, my appetite wasn’t feeling a sandwich at the time. So what do I do? I order tacos.
I went with an assortment of their different meats. It took around five minutes for everything to be prepared. Here’s a picture of some of the tacos.
For starters, the tortillas had a nice little texture to them after being grilled. They held the meats well and didn’t get too soggy for the ride home. Our favorites of all the meats and the one that stuck out the most was the al pastor. From a visual standpoint, they looked great and had a nice little sweet subtle tang to it. The carnitas we found to be a little on the tough side but not so much it ruined the whole taco.
While we enjoyed the tacos from Tortas Mary, we weren’t sure they stood out enough though to really set them apart from the multiple vendors at the market. From a price standpoint, the $2 tacos were right on part with all the other stands set up.
Here’s their menu:
