I never heard of a torta before. When you think of Mexican food you think burritos or tacos or tamales. It’s also said to think that many people believes Taco Bell is the real thing…*sigh. Anyways, it took my friend in LA to tell me about tortas from King Taco, she’s not a big Mexican so for her to rave about this beef torta I had to go try. I don’t really remember how it was since it was 2 years ago but I’m sure it was good, haha..ha. So one late drunken night, my friends and I were in search for food. Some of us went straight to the pizza place while some of us were attracted to the pretty green neon lights. We decided to go into Tacos Nuevo Mexico because there were enough seats for the 6 of us and I didn’t feel like having pizza. And damit, pizza places don’t serve margaritas! Going through the menu, it’s a pretty big menu, I saw TORTA! HHmmmmmmm…….Mexican sausage and egg torta, DONE! Again, writing this right now trying to think back what the torta was like is difficult. I only remember it being very good but was looking for the egg. I didn’t see no egg but it was good. So this time I went for the roast pork torta (next time I should get 2, 1 torta barely fills me up) and I have decided that the bread of the torta was what made this sandwich so good. The bread was soft and chewy. I’m tempted to ask them where they get their bread from.
