I do love me a torta ahogada though I'd check this place out even if it is not perfect. did the jalapeno /corn thing come as part of the deal?

Kirk

LOL Kat! It's more of an undecided.......

Hi Grey - The jalapeno comes with the dish. You can choose between steamed veggies or corn.....take the corn.

Faye

Yeah a place has to be pretty awesome for me to drive all the way to Gaslamp to eat :) Did you just park at Horton Plaza?

Not a fan of sauce being poured over a sandwich. I bet the jalapeno would have been great if it was grilled properly w/ the bacon! But the corn looked really nice.

Nice post!

Looks good but sounds disappointing.

Kirk

Hi Faye - Actually Torta Ahogadas basically means drowned sandwich...it should be even wetter. I easly found parking on the street since it was a weekend morning.

I agree Bill!

Jason

You know what... if you had given this place a stellar review I would have tried to go there for lunch tomorrow since I'm down there for jury duty. But yeah, like Faye said a drenched sandwich doesn't really thrill me. If it's like a French dip where you control your sauce, then that works. But a pre-drenched sandwich just means goopy bread. Thanks for the review!

Kirk

Hi Jason - This would be a bit of a truck from the courthouse. I think you should check a Tortas Ahogadas, but perhaps from El Gallito

Jason

Yeah you're right Kirk, that would have been quite the hike. Ended up with Panera instead. Maybe one of these days I'll try a Tortas Ahogadas, I'll keep an open mind and try it if I see it.

Kirk

Hi Jason - I hope you enjoy it!
