Attention MSPD - Torta Alert. I repeat, a Torta Alert for Taqeuria Los Paisanos

MSPD,

I was wondering if you have had a chance to try a place called Taqueria Los Paisanos? It is located on the Northeast Corner of Arcade and 7th street in St. Paul. I have a few friends that are officers of the law and they recommended that I give this place a shot. It looks like a dump from the outside, but it's a big hit inside.

I had the Torta Carne Asda and my wife went with the Torta Milanesa. Both were huge on flavor. They have sauces that you can add at the table and we both went with the green chile which just added to the punch. Generous amounts of meat, fresh toppings, just a great authentic presentations of the sandwich which was easily as good as Los Ocampos just down the road. My wife's only critical comment was she thought the beans tasted a little flat. Since I can't eat those anyway, didn't mean a thing to me.

I have to say, this was the best torta I've had since Olmeca was firing on all cylinders a few years back. Just wanted to give you a heads up as I know you someone who enjoys a good Torta from time to time. Let me know if you go or if any others reading this have been.
