What is a Torta Ahogada? It translates as ‘drowned sandwich’.
The story of the Torta Ahogada begins with Señor de la Torre, a sandwich maker in Guadalajara in the early 1900’s. He was famous for his Tortas – workers came every day to enjoy the bread that was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, the pork filling marinated in garlic and citrus and fried until crisp.
One day, a customer asked for a bit of salsa to be added to his Torta. Señor de la Torre accidentally dropped the sandwich into the container of salsa. “You drowned it!” exclaimed the customer.
But he ate it anyway. And loved it. He told his friends. Soon, everyone was ordering the ‘drowned’ Torta.
It’s been credited with curing hangovers and stopping colds. It’s delicious and made correctly, it is an art form.
The original Torta shop, El Guerito, still stands in the city center on Calz Independencia Sur in Guadalajara.
We think ours, also, will bring magic to your life – a traditional dish of Dia de los Muertos.
