    Torta Ahogada - It is called "drowned" because the sandwich is submerged totally or partially in a sauce made primarily of a dried chili pepper called chile. Found mostly in the city of Guadalajara. You can go to a hundred Mexican restaurants that serve a regular torta and not see this one. Stumbled into a place that had it. https://www.seriouseats.com/2015/04/torta-ahogada-history-sandwich-guardalajara-mexico.html

    My favorite torta is a Torta Cubana though. Not every place has this one either. Quite a few serve it with a hot dog in it as well, tho it's not my preference.

    Stir fired bamboo shoots.

    If you haven't had them, they taste a bit like hearts of palm, sun chokes, and/or artichoke hearts. Going to an Asian market over the weekend, I saw for the first time Chinese cauliflower.

    Salvadorian Pupusas- Various meats (pork, chicharones) and cheese inside, topped with pickled cabbage and hot sauce. Paired with a fresco de tamarindo (fresh tamarind drink).

    There is a Pupuseria a couple hundred yards from my in laws house.
