A gringo safe taste of Mexico

I would not recommend a street vendor unless they were recommended by others and safe for gringos. This food trailer, always at the SE corner of Conzatti park, serves tasty Tortas, the Mexican answer to the sub sandwich or the philly cheese steak. The large bun is stuffed with a vegetable mixture... read more

This cute street stand has been serving great Fortas in the same place on Conzati Park for seven years that I know of. Always busy with gringos as well as locals. Don't miss the Torta Cubano!

At a corner of Victor Gomez Farias and Reforma in the Jardin Conzantii we found La Hormiga (The Ant), a clean, well organized cart selling a variety of inexpensive Tortas all served on really fresh bread. $20 to $30 pesos.

The location on the corner of Conzatti Park is perfect as ones delicious torta can be enjoyed in the beauty and tranquility of the lovely park, or bring it home. A wide variety of tortas (my favorite is the Cubana) available for under $3. Breakfast or lunch, always a line of locals, which is a good sign.

Great selection of "tortas," fast as can be except of course it there is a lineup of locals. There are several locations, but the one most convenient to downtown tourists is at the south end of Conzatti park.

I lived in Oaxaca for over a month and I kept coming back to La Hormiga. They have a few locations, but the truck on Conzatti Park was my favorite! You grab your trrat and sit in the park it's perfect,! Their tortas are always fresh and great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! It's a full meal for approx 20... More

The best Tortas we've ever had. We tried the chorizo, tinga, chili relleno and salchicha which were all delicious! The Quesillo is optional for all of them, but I personally prefer them without because it made them more chewy then I like. Either way you can't go wrong. The bread/rolls used are perfect for Tortas, light in the middle with... More

Fantastic tortas! Fast service, clean, tasty and cheap, what could be better?! Everything is great but our favorite was the doble queso, manchego and quesillo. Best grilled cheese ever!

my husband and I went to this place after visiting santa domingo church. it was about 3 blocks north and 1 block east side of the church. The food was excellent. So good that we decided to come back for lunch tomorrow. I ordered Cubano tortas (no frijol which is the bean spread) for 32 pesos and my husband ordered... More
