Super Tortadawg

You would think I would have had my share of tortas already- but no! I always eat at this Tortas Frontera (and the one in Terminal 1) when I fly out of O’Hare. Tortas were built for this kind of energetic environment, and with all the thousands of passersby they practically sell themselves on sight and smell alone. The fact is they live up to the reputation of the Chef.

My favorite part of Tortas Frontera is that it’s always changing and exciting. During this visit I had a sweet and savory that weren’t on the menu just a few weeks ago. The chefs special was an amazing torta albondigas. Spicy, smoky, acidic and most importantly, meaty! For dessert, we tried Lucila’s Chicago-made alfajores- crumbly Argentinean cookies sandwiching soft and sweet goat’s milk caramel.

Tortas Frontera has some of the best tortas I’ve ever had, and the dynamic style of service perfectly suits one of the most bustling airports in the country.
