TORONTO’S TOP TAKEOUT: That’s a whole lotta torta, bro!!!

Now, I’ve been known to crush a torta or two in my time, so when I heard that El Charro, this funky Mexican joint at Danforth and Broadview, was serving up not one, not two, not three, not four, but five different tortas, you KNOW I had to check it out! But I couldn’t decide which one to get, so I ended up ordering la Charra, which is like the Meat Mountain of tortas, stuffed with everything but the kitchen sink, son!!!

This mucho meat monstrosity comes with breaded chicken, breaded beef, al pastor pork, chorizo and eggs… and then they add brown beans, guacamole, onions, tomatoes and cheese. The sandwich was still nice and warm after coming all the way from Greektown, although the bread was starting to fall apart under all that meat. Dude, this belongs in the dictionary next to “sandwich that eats like a meal” — I feel like I could almost skip dinner after destroying this bad boy!!!
