• Torta - Los Reyes de la Torta - Phoenix

    While sitting by the pool at my Scottsdale resort I started feeling a little antsy and hungry. So I walked around the pool and was talking to one of the guys who pass the towels out to the guests. I mentioned I was hungry and he recommended a lunch spot for me. He warned me that it wasn't in a "touristy" neighborhood, but it would be worth it.

    Using my handy GPS I made it over to Los Reyes de la Torta! I believe I was the only English speaking person in the restaurant, so was optimistic I would be getting the "real deal."

    The menu is in Spanish, but has lots of pictures. I keyed in on the house specialty, the "Torta Del Ray." This gastronomic ecstasy of a sandwich is filled with breaded beef, pork, ham, chorizo, cheese, and then topped with avocado, beans, tomatoes, onions, and jalapeno, and for the ultimate final touch a fried egg.

    If the internals of this sandwich weren't enough it was all loaded into a Mexican bread called telera. Wow!

    It looked intimidating but after one bite I immediately recognized that this was truly an orgasmic experience. The combination of flavor, texture and color were outstanding.

    The restaurant is attached to a juice bar, and any of the aguos frescas make a great accompaniment to the torta.

    The sandwich is certainly large enough to share with at least one or maybe even two of your closest friends.

    The other times I visited I wanted to order something else, since everything I saw being served looked great. But, I just couldn't tear myself away from the specialty of the house.

    A great sandwich for locals and tourists! Extremely casual.
