Midtown taco joint goes against the grain with Torta Tuesdays


Dish of the Week: Tortas at Rreal Tacos

By Henri Hollis

Should tortas replace tacos as the official restaurant special of Tuesday? Rreal Tacos makes a strong case with its weekly torta deal .

Rreal Tacos’ torta is a hearty sandwich, made with beans, queso, avocado, pico de gallo, cabbage, onion, mayo, crema and your choice of taco meat. I’d recommend the Pork Trompo: spit-roasted pork seasoned with smoky peppers and traditional Mexican spices. Like a good taco, the layers of the torta complement the rich, smoky pork without erasing its flavor. The sandwich is balanced, filling and just messy enough to be fun.

The real star of the torta, though, is the bolillo bread. Like a short, plump baguette, the bolillo at Rreal Tacos has a delightful crust that crunches and shatters as you lift it up, with a soft, pliable interior that soaks up the flavors of the filling. Available only on Tuesdays for $5.99, the torta at Rreal Tacos is a meal unto itself and one of the best dinner deals in Midtown.
