Manny's Tortas

Manny's Tortas started out in 1999 as a small Mexican sandwich shop near Lake and 19th and has grown to be a staple in the Midtown Global Market as well as a beloved favorite of the Mercado Central. Manny's Tortas is owned by a husband and wife team who brought their hometown favorite to the states. The menu is simple and features a few salads and tortas. Tortas are Mexican sandwiches made on crusty rolls featuring all sorts of specialty meats and sauces. Each of Manny's sandwiches include avocado, refried beans, jalapenos, spicy mayo, cheese, tomato, lettuce and onion. I ordered my torta with chorizo and egg. The combination of the spicy mayo and jalapeno alongside the spicy chorizo sausage was ummm could I say, SPICY!! I had to pull out the jalapenos midway through my meal because my mouth was burning so bad. The torta was saved by the avocado and beans which helped to cool things down a bit. I would recommend ordering a torta with a milder meat such as milanesa, a breaded pork or chicken. Regardless of my spicy choice in tortas, this hot spot remains on the top of my list of great sandwiches in the Twin Cities. Everyone needs to try a torta at least once, so why not now?!
