That's how my momma says sandwich. And I bet if I took her to Xoco, Rick Bayless' third Chicago restaurant focusing on his take on Mexican street food, she would say, "This is one damn good sahn-wees." Well, the Spanish version of that.

I don't know what streets of Mexico Rick Bayless is walking down, but I'm sure glad he brought those streets to Chicago. I've never had a sandwich dipped in broth in Mexico before, but it's how I want to eat ALL my sandwiches from now on.

That there is the torta Ahogada: carnitas with black beans in a spicy arbol chile sauce and a tomato broth for dipping.

By the way, I am in love with Rick Bayless. Like, for reals. The only old man I lust after and it's all because of how he cooks Mexican food.
