Welcome to Tortillaphilia, a place where you can be you without being judged.
Tortillaphilia is a lifestyle. We travel, we watch esoteric movies, we eat fine foods, we ruminate about life. And we do, of course, give that burrito just a little more attention than the burger.
The site is curated by Mack Salmon, who invites you to be you. Remember: Tortillaphilia does not make you a monster.
