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!

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!

I decided to give is place a try when I saw how popular it is among locals. I was glad I did. The food is tasty and cheap, and you can eat it in the pretty park where this stand is located. Recommended!
