Nixta Minneapolis is a local, inclusively owned takeout restaurant and tortilleria. They are also a new Community Foods producer at Seward Co-op. We recently highlighted them in our summer Sprout! grilling feature. We circled back with Gustavo Romero (he/him) of Nixta, to learn more about what Nixta is cooking up this summer.
Gustavo has cooked all across the country from Miami to San Francisco. Later he and his wife, Kate (she/her), who is also a chef, settled in Minneapolis. During COVID, they had to pivot as the restaurant industry took a critical blow, so they started making tortillas — superfood tortillas with heirloom corn. Now they are working on getting them in as many hands as possible and helping elevate tacos for home and restaurant cooks in the Twin Cities. You can find Nixta tortillas at both Seward Co-op stores!
Upcoming for Nixta
Nixta is currently growing its distribution and adding more robust nutritional labeling to their tortillas and tostadas. Their restaurant in Northeast is now open Thursday and Friday from 3-8 p.m., and Saturday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Gustavo invites everyone to join them for, “tacos y mas, (tlayudas, tlacoyos, tamales, tetelas, basically all your vitamin T needs!)” Follow Nixta on their social media for upcoming partnerships on a corn beer with Dangerous Man Brewing, a pop-up with Alma, and a dinner collaboration with chef Yia Vang on June 25.
