I love a great Torta...

And a good Banh Mi too, of course.
Luckily living in Colorado gives one pretty good examples of each.

Banh Mi all crunch and zing, and the Torta so unctuous and rich.
I discovered Tortas pretty late in life too, for the same reasons you mention.

The quality of the bread is the key to both.
Funny how in theory, the bread's intended to be a vehicle, just something to hold on to to get the filling to your mouth, but really it's always the bread that makes or breaks the sandwich.

I love the toasting of the insides on the griddle before filling--just one of the little things that makes all the difference.


this looks so delicious. wish there are more authentic mexican restaurants here in manila.

Nice! I still say banh mi is the cat's meow, but a fine torta is indeed squee-worthy. San Diego and Los Angeles are also good places for high-qual Viet and Mex eats.
