21. August 2012: Street Restaurant Tortas

| August 26, 2012 | 0 Comments

While the tortas I had in the Restaurant Châlet Gourmet already provided me with a good idea but were very touristic – the real tortas from the street are a whole different story. I had a Grande Torta Española (Milanesa, Chorizo y Quesillo; 37 MXN) – the torta is quite big but the beef as well as the chorizo together with the cheese were definitely giving it the special taste. The dish is heavy and you are more than stuffed after one but they are absolutely rich.

The Street Restaurant Tortas is basically nothing more than a little mobile kitchen (which is always there though) right next to the Walmart in the Fray Servando Teresa de Mier.

You can watch the chef preparing the tortas on his mini grill in the mobile kitchen and you can see that he has made a million tortas within the last years. Within five minutes three different tortas were prepared.

Tortas from a street kitchen are definitely way better than anything commercial – so if you have the chance to try exactly these or any other from a street kitchen, take advantage of that and try them!
