So good! Fast easy and affordable. We loved this place, the big sandwiches are enough to share between two people. Make sure to stock up on the pickles as well!

Este tienda de tortas es mi favorito! I always ordered ''queso y puerco'' and ''agua de jamaica''. The price was very kind for students like me. And all the staff worked hard with smiling. Sadly, I'm in Japan, but I'd really like to visit there...More
