#80: Torta Ahogada, La Superior

29 down. 72 to go.

I made a deal with my wife: I go to this party with you, and you go with me to get a sandwich. Sure enough, later that night we were at La Superior with the waitress about to take our order.

The sandwich that made the list is the Torta Ahogada. According to wikipedia it’s a Guadalajara staple, and if that’s true, I’m moving there. For those of you who don’t speak Spanish, Torta Ahogada means “sandwich in pork soup”. Oh wait, that’s not true. It actually translates to “drowned sandwich” which is more clever and just as accurate. Either way, it’s delicious. I’m not quite sure why more sandwiches aren’t made like this.

It’s a shredded pork sandwich served on soggy pork infused, toasted sour dough bread that still has hints of crunchiness. The sandwich is then placed in a bowl filled with a spicy tomato sauce, so before long everything is blended together into one delicious pork soup sandwich. This was my first time eating a sandwich with a spoon! Fortunately, it won’t be the last because I will be back.

And the party actually ended up being pretty fun!
