Tortas are so hot right now!

┬íComa Rico! is another place I drive by all the time but never got around to trying until today. Blogging is totally enriching my life. Anyway I’m so glad I did. I tried a pupusa and a torta (al pastor). The pupusa (pollo y queso) was not quite as good as Orellana’s but was still great. The torta had a lot going on (in a good way). I’d ask for it without all the mayo next time, but the meat (pork) was perfect and it had plantains and jalapenos that worked together deliciously. We also got a mango licuado that was as big as my head and yet I could not stop drinking it. Thank god for my friend’s help with half of it, without which I would completely be dead right now.


The pupuseria is in the back of this casa de cambio.

    Thanks, and keep up the great work!
