Not my usual sandwich.

Taking a lunch break from my recently borrowed 24-disc Radiohead unreleased tracks collection (which, by the way, is a ridiculous amount of music), I trooped up to Pio Maya to see what was going on. They seem to have an array of specials now, or at least “things on the exterior chalkboard that aren’t on the menu,” so I forewent the usual tacos and tried a Torta Milanese.

Milanese is generally like schnitzel, although it was tough to tell if this was breaded or merely pounded – probably the latter. At any rate, it was a new and unique spin on the usual steak sandwich – particularly liked the slightly spicy peppers and the layer of refried beans. Cheese, onions, lettuce, tomato and avocado rounded out the toppings.

  1. Hi,I’m new to your blog, but I really like your posts. Your descriptions are compelling, but I wish you would include some photos to supplement the great writing! I’m a college student in Baltimore who likes to eat out, but I’m on a tight budget so your posts are inspiring. I’ll have to try out some of the places you mention when I’m closer to your neck of the woods at home in New Jersey. Keep up the good work!Thanks!

  2. Laryssa,Glad you like the writing. Not much of a photog, so I’ll leave coverage like that to Robyn of “The Girl who Ate Everything” when she returns from Paris. Some of the places I’ve talked about, she has also been too, though, so check her archives!
