Mawi. Strange name for a Tortilleria, right? Actually, the word Mawi, in Aztec dialect, means “to feed an abundance, as people are gathering”. So we guess that Mawi is the perfect name for us! Our roots are humble, but deep, deep in history, culture, family and flavor. Come by, see what we mean.

 

At the foundation of Mawi, is the Avelar family, with its food, its heart and its soul. As Chef Will Avelar says, “I grew up eating tortillas in Costa Rica with my mom. Tortillas are important because they remind me of my youth. One of my first introductions to a food item.”
