I forget what kind of sandwich this was, except that it was spicy. I’m pretty sure it was a torta de chorizo. The sausage was spicy and delicious. The sandwich was huge and i ended up not finishing the bun.
I ordered it Tacos El Gavilan http://www.tacoselgavilan.com/menu/
It is a busy taco shop on Sunset Boulevard and Highland.
The pickles (las aceitunas) were tasty.
There are plenty of decent taco shops like this all over Los Angeles. I would return.
I love that mutton used in tacos al pastor, so one morning on my recent trip to Mexico City when I was on my way to Chapultepec Castle I stopped by this sandwich stall near Plaza Garibaldi.
Instead of getting the meat in the little tacos I opted for the sandwich version. The bun is grilled and the meat is topped with pico de gallo.
It was delicious and it wasn’t so massive that it slowed me down. The Mexican Coke made it a nutritious breakfast.
I made some good progress on unfinished unpublished manuscript #3 today when the battery on my laptop ran down to nothing. I was playing Clash Royale furiously and losing. So after I went to Takashimaya and discovering that they did not have the book I wanted (The Regional Office is Under Attack) I returned to Somerset, slightly cranky, because the battery in my laptop had run down and because I had drunk a lot of coffee.
Back at 313 Somerset I went to the new Mexican restaurant, Barrio and ordered a pulled pork torta and a margarita. The chipotle aioli was nice. The marinated cabbage added crunch and sourness. Eventually I had to use a knife and fork to finish the pleasantly greasy sandwich.
