Tortisimas opens on Federal with a tempting board of tortas

Tortas aren't as common in Denver as burritos, tacos and enchiladas, all of which are indicative of this city's defiant obsession with Mexican food, but the mighty torta, Mexico's president of sandwiches, is popping up along pavements throughout the city, the latest of which is Tortisimas, which just opened at 375 Federal Boulevard. The bread -- called a birote -- is procured from a local bakery and stands as the canvas for just about every topping you can imagine: ham, chorizo, pork chops, frankfurters, eggs, chicken, steak, pineapple, pickled onions, avocado, chiles, tomatoes and, of course, melted cheese. Tortisimas features nearly thirty tortas, all of which are served with a small cup of blood-red chipotle sauce. Housemade aguas frescas and desserts, including a chocolate flan, are also part of the Mexican journey. Feast on the photos on the next page.
