La Biznaga and La Gran Torta

La Biznaga

 The menu at La Biznaga offers a wide range of options.  You can make a meal from soup, salad, and appetizers or you can go the full dinner route.  They also offer a comida corrida.  Prices are reasonable, the setting comfortable, but don’t be in a hurry, service can be slow.  So while you wait they offer a full bar, mezcals, and Belgian and Mexican beers.  As an example of the salads picture a mound of spinach with grapefruit and tocion (Mexican bacon).  Soups include several standards and a few not so standard.  Two people can eat for less than 200 pesos or run a sizeable bill at the bar.  They have a website http://labiznaga.com.mx/ and are located at García Vigil 512.

La Gran Torta

La Gran Torta offers a range of tortas, tacos, and pozole.  Pozole is a meat broth, usually pork or chicken with corn in the form of hominy.  To this you can expect a variety of meats, chicharrón (pork rinds), cabbage, radish, avocado, and salsa that you add to taste.  There are vegetarian versions and a lovely sardine pozole.  Tortas run the full range including a nice Cubana. Two people can eat for less than 200 pesos. La Gran Torta is located at Porfirio Díaz 208.
