LAS TORTAS
I have a friend that lives on Cambie and I have been waiting for this restaurant to open for what seems like months. This time we strolled by and to my surprise it was open. Woo hoo, our hungry bodies walked in there to see a pretty Mexican girl who directed us to the table to write our orders on a paper bag.

We all ordered different sandwiches and each of us claimed that our own choice was the best. I had the Carne Asada con Queso (Marinated and roasted beef with oaxaca $9.30) while my frieds ordered the cubana (Pierna, jamon, milanesa and palena cheese - $9.95) and the choriqueso (Chorizo sausage and oaxaca cheese - $9.30).


My Carne Asada was really tasty, the meat had a nice flavour to it and the toasted home made telera bread bun comes equiped with cabbage, tomato, pickled onions, jalapenos, guacamole, butter, mayo and refried beans. I was surprised that I really like the refried beans. The bite I had of the my friends choriqueso was really flavourful and had a sloppy joe kinda feel. Kent's cubana had these little amazing pieces of panela cheese that were delicious. They didn't melt and had a spongy feel to it.

We had a glass of tamarind drink ($2) to wash it all down.

My personal thoughts is that Las Tortas offers a really tasty sandwich but I need them to throw in a handful of chips or drop the price down by a dollar or two. At ten dollars a sandwich they are just a little pricey.

The chips were really good. I just took some of the free samples but I think they were 2 bucks.

Duffins rules but now that the main street location is gone, the drive to 41st is a little too far. This is a more gourmet version.

Stoked. I am trapped somewhat around the Cambie/Oak and B'way area and needing food suggestions around the area. I can def walk there and try out.

I agree it is way too expensive for what you get - a place to perch (barely) and a sandwich - well worth the trip to Duffins for as good food much better price and I like the atmosphere

Duffins atmosphere?? sure if you a truck driver..
Duffins less expensive,yes. but quality not comparable.
Hope some day they sell any kind of fish torta.

You can get The Torta of the day for $9.95 includes chips dip and drink. You can not compare with duffins, Las Tortas bread is the real mexican one, Their Size is Double, plus quality wise BETTER, Real Oaxaca and Panela Cheese. Is not about how much you paid, Is about how you enjoy.
Cheers.
