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!
Sofrito Lovers,

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!
