Best Thing We Ate Last Night: Rivera's Tortillas Flores

We stopped in to Rivera in Downtown LA for a quick drink (the Blood Sugar Sex Magic is still one of the most refreshing cocktails around), and ended up with a few snacks at the bar. Anyone who’s had the tortillas flores here, or at any event where chef John Sedlar serves them, knows these are not just any tortillas. They are sheer perfection. The corn is coarsely ground creating a lovely thicker tortilla which doesn't crumble or fall apart. They're hand-pressed with flowers and herbs centered in each one, and come warm with a side of “Indian butter,” or a super creamy guacamole. The tortillas are as beautiful to look at as they are to eat, and simply one of the best bar snacks ever.
