The name is no exaggeration. In true torta tradition, the sandwiches are far too stuffed to stay between the bread. Once you unleash the paper that holds this tasty package together, grab a fork. Carne asada is delicious; lengua is divine. And where else but Super Torta can you find a pastrami quesadilla?
Por Que No?
Dandy tacos, petite but perfectly juicy. Porque Tinga – shredded Cascade Natural Beef in a smoky pasilla chile sauce – es muy bueno. Just say si to Por Que No?
Wonderful giant tortas. This busy little place – it’s also a bakery – has expanded. Check out the old pictures from Michoacan and the Old Country. Sanchez Taqueria serves the real deal, as authentic as the photos on the wall.
El Sol de Mexico
Come hungry, really hungry. The menu is voluminous – crab quesadilla, anyone? – and the portions at El Sol de Mexico are Olympian. Grab a booth overlooking the scenic wetlands and relax – you’re going to be there awhile.
Javier’s Taco Shop
When it’s way past your bedtime and you get hit with a craving for a juicy burrito al Pastor, head to Javier’s Taco Shop for some satisfyingly-greasy Mexican relief. They’re open 24 hours, serve up hefty portions quick, and are just off the 405.
