Tortas ahogadas in/around the SouthBay?

Pezzy | Jan 12, 2009 08:58 PM

Any of these Mexican sandwiches in or around the South Bay area? I'm looking for tortas done in a traditional Jalisco style with the sauce and all. Bien ahgada!

Also, any recommendations for good Mexican food, also preferably more traditional than Americanized? I've found a bakery I like but not a restaurant or a Mexican carniceria that I'd keep going back to.

I've found Peruvian food in this area and am thus far happy with Kotosh's (in Lomita) ceviche which was flavorful with a tad of spiciness. I also tried a couple of rolls and found them to have fresh, good cuts of fish as well as being creative. I need to go back and try some more rolls and Peruvian dishes to get a more conclusive feel for this place. =) Oh, but it's small and packed!

As a side note, does anyone know of any sushi places that serve fresh, good quality fish and have creative rolls. Rolls that include carpaccio sauce, any spicy rolls, or rolls with garlic are what's intriguing me now. I'm not necessarily looking for traditional Japanese sushi. I've found decent sushi in the Southbay but not great sushi. I've found great Japanese steakhouses, and noodles but I find myself still driving to the Westside for sushi.

I'm just trying to fill in my gaps for food that I like to eat in this area. Thanks for any help!
