¡Tortas Gigantes! truck on 82nd Ave

and Otto (?Otter...can't remember exactly) but close to Johnson Creek Blvd.

Check them out and be warned that they really are gigantic. They had a huge variety of tortas that were divided into torata with egg+ingredient or melted cheese+ingredient or cold ones. Plus, a section on tortas cubanas, which I'd never seen before, but are supposidly pretty popular in Mexico City. I had the fresh cheese (not sure about the distinction, except to differentiate it from cheddar I suppose, it was white and mild, maybe mozzarella) and pork sausage which I picked because in spanish the name was close to Linguica. I think it was the Mexican version of Linguica, it certainly tasted like it. The partner went with the "sausage" in the cold section of the menu, which turned out to be hotdogs. He says it was the best hogdog sandwich he's ever had, 3 dogs split and deep fried, grilled torta bun (great quality, some taste like hamburger buns, this one didn't), mayo, generous amounts of avacado, good tomatoes, onion and pickled jalepeños. My sandwich was sublime as well and thank god it didn't come with mayo. Next time I'm picking something with a little less grease though, I could only eat 1/2. The ham and egg looks mighty tasty. They had a little side menu with tacos, burritos and tostadas, but I only saw gringos ordering those. Everybody else was getting tortas.
