A Spoonful of Sofrito: Leave the Taco, take the Cemitas...
A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life!
The article below breaks down Mexican sandwich culture in NYC to a tee! I'm a huge torta (or cemita) lover! How can you beat a sandwich with breaded chicken, avocado, sour cream, tomatoes, jalapenos, and fried red onions on it?
Tortas can come in a limitless assortment of combinations! They're flavorful, hearty, and really satisfying.
In the article, the author mentions some of the best places in the City to get tortas. I love the spot he mentions in El Barrio, Vallecito, which I think is ten times better than any of the taquerias in the neighborhood.
So when you've got a sandwich craving, skip Subways and visit one of the spots mentioned in the article below! You won't regret it! Now go taste for yourself! Buen provecho!
