Tortaria

Type 2 Creative and Be Fat Be Happy threw an awesome holiday bash at Tortaria to help promote the restaurant. But it ended up being the sort of unofficial holiday gathering for all of us foodporn slingers on Instagram.

Everyone slapped on hats and ugly sweaters to crank up the “festive” levels. This one, worn by @StuffBenEats, was by far the clear winner:

And he was even sporting some nice Mexican corn there, which looked like yellow Christmas trees covered with cheese-snow.

Here’s my sweater, in an awesome guac photo that Ben took:

The guacamole here is tight, speaking of. Lots of flavor, and good restaurant quality chips and salsa to go with.

And the pitchers of margaritas? Slammable!

A few interesting new menu items were trotted out for us; the tortas (sandwiches). This one is made with thinly sliced fried eggplant, and topped with chipotle sauce, bacon and avocado. Really nice.

The one I was drawn to most, however, was this short rib torta:

This, too, is topped with avocado. There’s also lettuce, fried onion and jalapeno peppers on there as well.

And of course, tacos!

I’ll definitely be back here. This is a great place to just get blasted and eat your face off. Nothing pretentious about it!
