A Sandwich a Day: Breakfast Torta at Fast and Fresh Burrito Deli

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

Boerum Hill's standby for Mexican standards, Fast and Fresh Burrito Deli is not quite in the same league as the taquerias of Sunset Park, but it's nothing to scoff at if you need a serviceable torta or a pair of tacos in a pinch. The deli's breakfast tortas ($3.50 each, $4 after 11:00 a.m.) make for an particularly good meal on the go, offering a few options for mixing and matching.

The egg with chorizo torta sprinkles bits of chorizo into fried egg, serving the resulting omelette with refried beans and pickled jalapeños on a fresh, fluffy telera. While the chorizo itself could stand to be more flavorful, the sandwich as a whole is a satisfying breakfast treat at any hour of the day.
