Risk of gluten exposure: The kitchen at Milpa does handle gluten. They normally serve wheat flour tortillas and two gluten-containing desserts. They will take special precautions on the day of our event. They will not serve any gluten products that day to reduce the risk of any cross contamination. They have a gluten free fryer. Milpa soaks the corn and makes their own corn tortillas in-house. They use a separate process for corn tortillas than for wheat tortillas.

The $55 price tag does not include tax or gratuities. You’ll also be responsible to pay for any drinks you may wish to enjoy.
