Connecting visitors with their ideal travel experiences in Tucson and Southern Arizona.
Most supermarket tortillas are a disgrace to the artform – overly doughy discs made in some soulless factory somewhere. Thanks to La Estrella, it’s unnecessary to settle on that front for your in-home burritos, etc. Tucson’s likely best known panadería cranks out one airy flour tortilla after another out of the back of their 12th Avenue shop, along with incredibly flaky empanadas of several flavors, plus pig-shaped molasses cookies called cochitos, the very popular sea-shell-like conchas and so many more filling their display case of temptations. DID YOU KNOW?: Being able to get La Estrella’s delicious tortillas anywhere around town is a definite plus, but it’s also worth checking out their Mercado San Agustin location – a mini-version of their 12th Avenue headquarters with an array of empanadas and sweet treats to choose from.
