Mexican sandwiches, or tortas as they are traditionally called, can be found on the menus of some of Toronto's best Mexican restaurants. These layered morsels of deliciousness are served on crusty bread and filled to the nines with meat and vegetables.
Here are my picks for the top places to chow down on Mexican sandwiches in Toronto.
