Look at this masterpiece of modern culinary science What is going on Members of the Barrio It’s Jon coming to you from Guadalajara And every time you visit a new city There is always that one or two local dishes That everybody tells you.. You’ve got to try In New York.. it’s Pizza In London it’s fish and chips And here in Guadalajara.. it’s Torta Ahogada And basically.. it is a pork sandwich Which is absolutely drenched in spicy salsa I’ve gotten so many recommendations about where to try this food We have settled on Tortas Tono Which is a very famous chain I’m going to be trying this for the first time I’ve teased it the last couple of weeks And Adriana is going to be trying it For the 2nd time Alright Adriana.. So I just told everybody it is your second time.. Trying Tortas Ahogada And you didn’t like it so much the first time? No I didn’t But I was also to young And maybe I went to a bad spot to eat it So i’m going to give it a second chance And i’m going to let you know Life is all about second chances Let’s do this I have just ordered the most traditional With Carnitas Adriana which one did you get? The same.. Okay we’re going to do this right Let’s do it well Sweet sauce Spicy Picante..Bold letters And this is the famous bread that it comes with Extra hard because it’s dunked Drowned.. in Salsa The super spicy salsa Just a little bit on top At some Tortas Ahogadas spots They’ll just make it for you Here it’s more self service But I asked her to make it Traditional just for me.. And I guess she felt bad for me So she did the whole thing As you just saw And it smells so good here I can not wait to try this Adriana and I have found a little spot in the corner Where we’re going to be attempting this taste test Guys look at this Look at this masterpiece of modern culinary science Torta Ahogada means drowned Drowned in salsa As you just saw And I read that the origin of this dish Started in the early 1900s In Guadalajara When somebody ordered a Torta sandwich..
With Carnita.. with pork At a vendor And the vendor accidentally dropped the sandwich into the salsa And the guy said look you drowned it And from then on this vendor kept selling it I don’t know if this story is true or not Tell me in the comments.. If you’ve got a better story About how tortas ahogada’s.. came to be But enough talking Let’s try this already There’s two ways you can eat this mess We can use our hands And i’m going to try it I’m going to probably need a cleaner tomorrow Or you can use a spoon Let’s start with the hands I’m going to get at least one bite with my bare hands Oh my god.. This is insane Alright first bite ever of a Torta Ahogada I like the bread.. I really like the bread a lot I think bite number two, i need more meat for you guys I’ll let you know what I think It’s not as spicy as I thought it would be I’ve read that the mixture of the sweet salsa And the spicy stuff together Kind of balances it out And i’m feeling that here I didn’t go to crazy on the salsa I like the pork.. I’m not going to say this is my favorite sandwich ever But I am happy to be adventerous trying this. And i’m going to need a few more bites To give you my final analysis on it I love the meat I really do I love it The sauce is to sweet I think maybe I should have Put more spicy sauce It’s a little bit messy Which I don’t like that much But it’s really good I like the taste After a few bites You can see.. either i’m a messy eater Or this a messy dish You’ve got to make up your .. decision Kind of looks like a tornado has passed through here Adriana is a lot neater But you didn’t put as much sauce as I did By the way the Horchata here Excellent I am forced at this point to use a spoon I tried guys, I tried really hard But I am going to a spoon right now And now i’m getting some of the picante part That the lady prepared for me Honestly I can handle it It’s not insanely spicy.. Unless you put a ton of that sauce on I imagine I’m almost done.. But I would say my favorite part of this Experience.. is mixing the soggy Remnants of this bread. With the sauce and the pork In one scoop It’s like an interesting stew at this point You just ate your second ever Torta Ahogada How does it compare to the first time? Much better Definitely It’s not my favorite dish ever But it was better. I liked it Before I was like.. i don’t want to try it again But now I think i would eat it again And it’s a fun thing to eat Actually You should play with your friends.. And say I dare you to finish your Torta Ahogada Without a spoon Gracias Alright Members of the Barrio I have tried my first Torta Ahogada And yes I liked it Is it my favorite mexican dish ever..
