Reply to "What did you have for lunch?"

We wanted to do a Rich Bayless restaurant while we were in Chicago, but the only one that fit in our schedule was his more casual sit down restaurant XOCO. I had a really nice braised goat torta that really hit the spot after walking around all morning. It was so good, we went to Tortas Frontera in O’Hare the next day before flying back home. There I got a simple carnitas torta that was excellent. My only complaint about both sandwiches was the bread. It was more of a fancy baguette that was too hard for a sandwich as it rips up the roof of your mouth. I much prefer the traditional Torta bread that I have had in Mexico which is more buttery soft with just a slight crunch. The fillings for the tortas are great though as was the salsa.
