Highlights From the Rogue 99 ~ Super Tortas DF

3:12 PM PDT on July 11, 2018

[dropcap size=big]W[/dropcap]atching Justino Gress assemble his torta cubana, a super-loaded Mexico City-style sandwich, behind the greasy stained window of his food trailer will have you second-guessing every sandwich you’ve ever made. Every fold, cut and layer of deli meats, cheeses, hot dogs, a chorizo omelette, avocado, vegetables, chiles and an ultra thin milanesa is precisely set on the special custom-made bun that’s produced by a local baker to minimize the girth of this beast of a sandwich. The rest of Justino’s menu draws from Mexico City classics like the Suisa (Swiss-three cheeses), lambada (pork leg, egg and chorizo) and the oaxaqueña (ham, hot dog and cheese), all well-seasoned and served on delicious bread that’s soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside.
