Mexico breaks record for its largest tasty ‘torta’ sandwich

Different from the traditional sandwich, the torta is bigger in size and can include a variety of products. Thousands of pieces of bread, lettuce, onion and tomato were mixed with myriad ingredients, including hundreds of litres of mayonnaise, mustard and spicy sauces. Each section of the super torta had a different flavour, each representing numerous combinations that local cooks have created over the years.

The torta challenge kicks off a fair aimed at elevating the status of the Mexican sandwich. In recent years the torta has taken a back seat to an increased consumption of mass marketed fast foods.
