This roughly 7’x10’ operation has been around since the ‘90s and continues to make some of the best tortas you’ll find in Los Angeles. The South Central truck specializes in Mexico City-style sandwiches with classic fillings like breaded steak, pork leg, ham, and chorizo. However, Torta Movil has changed things up over the years and now offers vegan options too, like the Soyri-Papa, which comes with soyrizo, soft-cooked potatoes, mushrooms, and caramelized onions on a soft telera roll. If you’re interested in a meatier sandwich, go for the Porky torta that comes with a trifecta of slow-cooked pork, spicy chorizo, and the often misunderstood (but seriously delicious) head cheese. All of these savory, spicy, and fatty flavors pair great with the sandwich’s mayo, jalapenos, avocado, lettuce, queso fresco, and frijoles.
