Tortas El Cuadrilátero

sunny 31 °C

There is more to Mexican food than tacos and enchiladas. Take for instance the torta -- filled like an American sandwich, grilled like an Italian panino, and generally a celebration of excess and Mexican ingredients.

Speaking of Mexican and excess, consider lucha libre, the Mexican corollary to American pro wrestling, only all the fighters wear masks. It's pretty popular. But eventually, luchadores retire, and one opened a lucha libre-themed torta shop:

Tortas el Cuadrilátero, or "Tortas from the Ring."

Some people will ask you if it's safe to eat in Mexico. I say, there's no country where a sandwich of hot dogs, sausage, ham, chorizo, bacon, pork, tomato, egg, cheese, and avocado would be safe, so why not eat it in Mexico?
