The trouble with tortas...

It's the white roll. I just can't get past it. I really *want* to love the al pastor torta at Tacos Lupita. I love their tacos, burritos, pupusas, etc., and the al pastor pork is fantastic. For some reason, though, the excess breadiness of that pasty, white roll, and the slight excess of mayo makes the whole experience too doughy and mild and, well, "white-bread" (in all senses of the word) for me, even with healthy doses of that smoky red sauce. I prefer a higher filling-to-vessel ratio, and strongly prefer corn tortillas to any white-flour creation. That said, I guess I'll stay away from the tortas from now on. Unless---are there any other places that do tortas with better bread?
