A discussion on Tortas
A few grind contemporaries ventured to the Mission during the lunch hour. This conversation occured upon the return to work.
Sandwich Destruction: Let the torta discussion commence!!!!
Sir Grindsalot: torta, how do I describe thee
Sir Grindsalot: ?
Cabbage: i think add avocado was a great topper
Cabbage: i would go no hot dog next time tho
Sandwich Destruction: And that it is inluded sans cost is a great treat
Sir Grindsalot: A base of queso fresca, creamy avocado, delicious bun platform and authentic tortan meats make for sure fire samwich satisfaction
Sir Grindsalot: but with so many slippery ingredients, it was high danger samwich fault zone - especially under the pressure of my hungry hands
Sandwich Destruction: I was plesantly surprised by the jalapenos, fresh condiments, and bread selection
Sir Grindsalot: everyone in there was latino as well, a good sign of latino eats
Cabbage: from an initial lack of customers we witness'd a rush of open border proportions
Sir Grindsalot: samwich immigrants risking their hunger
Sir Grindsalot: for better tortas
Sir Grindsalot: and how bout those breaded meats?!!!
Sandwich Destruction: breaded chicken was a revelation
Sandwich Destruction: but next time I need to try the breaded beef
