Reader: Ay Caramba! needs to invest in some spices for the guac
A torteria in Cherry Creek? That was the idea Alex Gurevich had when he opened Ay Caramba!, a full-service spot that focuses on the Mexican sandwiches.

Your review is spot-on. Boring, lacking flavor and not creative. Your description of the "guacamole" was great... when we visited during their first week open I figured we made a mistake by ordering it without going whole-hog. Apparently they still hadn't invested in garlic, salt, limes or jalapeno by the time you visited!
