Los alambres

Gastronomy in el Distrito Federal (D.F.), Mexico's capital, is all about street food. In fact, we believe it to be one of the top cities in mexico and the world where you must eat food in the streets. Los Alambres torteria, named after one of mexico city’s signature dishes “el alambre” is one of the most iconic street foods from the city, not to mention it has bacon in it! In addition to offering their namesake, los alambres 2, here at the portland mercado plaza, is narrowing down their menu to focus on crafting large, delicious tortas (sandwiches) available in more flavors than one could try in a week -- but we dare you to take on the challenge!
