Hi! I use to go to Aka Los Tortas in Chula Vista for ahhhmazing Lomo Tortas, but the place is no longer there. Does anyone know of another place with authentic Mexican tortas?

    Fruitland & Deli 109 Jamacha Road, El Cajon (where 2nd turns into Jamacha at Main) is a fruiteria and makes Lomo tortas. I like them very much, but don't know if they are authentic.

    The owner is very proud of her food, bakes the torta bread there daily.

    The address below is the other El Cajon location.

      Is Lomo beef or pork loin?

          In Mexico it would be primarily pork

              In my experience, always pork.
