La Torta Gorda - Mission, SF

I think of this meal as the second date of my new love affair with tortas—delicious, toasty Mexican sandwiches. The first was from Mijita, which I'll post next, out of order. Anyway, we had a couple different tortas. One was a shredded, marinated pork which was not unlike a pulled pork sandwich. Decent, but lacked something. The other was Al Pastor, which was the winner. Spicy, marinated pork with little chunks of pineapple piled onto a torta bun and pressed in a grill to make it crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. If I had to rate this one, I'd give it a 3 out of 5. It was good, but I know there are better things to come. Soon.
