Cook's Tortas Los Angeles Reviews
Unique and Delectable Sandwich Shop May 17, 2011
For those visiting LA I am sure, or at least I am hoping, that having Mexican food is near the top of your list. It only makes sense considering the proximity of the country and the great influence of the culture. While there are countless phenomenal taco trucks with varying versions of the classic selections, Cook's Tortas offers something completely unique. Their take on the classic torta goes to a completely different level. Interesting combinations like the cochinita, with Yucatan style pork, onion escabeche, black beans and crema, or the Ranchito with grilled steak, dry aged chorizo, nopalitos, cheese and spicy guacamole will seriously have you trembling in euphoria with every bite. Ok, maybe I'm going a bit overboard, but I seriously start salivating every time I think of Cook's.
It's a bit off the beaten path, not easy to get to with public transportation, but if you have an afternoon free and don't want to be on the west side, I STRONGLY recommend seeking this place out.
