Mexican tortas

Any recommendations in the NYC area for Mexican tortas? Either from a restaurant or a supermarket?

  1. They're easy enough to make at home. What kind were you looking for? Milanesa is basically just schnitzel with lettuce. tomato, cnions, mayo, jalapenos, and avocado. Getting the right kind of roll would be the tough part, I would think.

      Thanks. I haven't tried the bread, but it looks like a soft Italian bread. The Lengua (beef tongue) looks good as well as the Al Pastor. I don't know if such a thing as Al Pastor beef exists.
