The sandwich place next to Tacomiendo on Inglewood and Culver is finally open. @President_Mochi this is the ex Guadalajara bakery you asked about in the Mexican food in Inglewood thread.
Dropped in there this weekend and grabbed a couple of sandwiches to go. This is strictly a to go place. They have one small chest high table with a single stool.
We got the Lonche Tapatia and the Ropa Vieja. Sandwiches came with a small side of cabbage slaw, pickled jalapenos and a red salsa with a kick. We liked the bread, good crustiness, but not tough. Held up to the sauce without disintegrating. The sauce on the Lonche was a seasoned tomato sauce with chipotle, not very acidic but I also didn’t detect a lot of smoky chipotle. The meat was tender, good pork flavor. I generally like mayo but not sure if this worked for me.
The ropa vieja had a good beefy flavor, I didn’t detect a lot of the veggies. It also tasted like the same tomato sauce.
All sandwiches $6.99. Portions were good, flavors solid. I’d go back and try a few more. Maybe give them a chance to get their footing. They all looked very nervous and anxious to please. It looked liked a steady stream of native spanish speakers coming in ready to try the new kid on the block. Pics below of our sandwiches and the menu.
