Best Mexico is SO AWESOME! II

Do you know about torta cubanas?


It's a torta with absolutely everything imaginable on it. In the case of the taco truck on 116th Street, everything seemed to include milanesa, ham, egg, hot dog, another layer of milanesa?, cheese, lettuce, mayonnaise, onion, tomato, avocado, jalepeƱos, and probably lots more. Oh man. Can't even stand how great these are, even if this was my first since 1997.


But you know what sandwiches really tick me off? These cuban sandwiches that are pork, ham, pickle, and mustard. I bought a few of those when I first came to New York thinking I was going to get a Mexican Cuban. Nope. Totally different. Not nearly enough pig.

typo in your post, I believe it should read, "another layer of milanesa!"

You are more dangerous to my young child than the flu, as every time I hear of actual good Mexican food in New York I start planning trips to Harlem. Keep up the good work.

That's what old editors in chief are for!

The question mark reflected an inability to recall the incredible contents of my sandwich, definitely not a wondering of why they would give me two layers of milanesa.
