El Cuadrilátero

Sandwiches in Mexico City

Owned by wrestler Super Astro, this torta joint features a shrine to lucha libre (Mexican wrestling) masks. The mother of all tortas, the 1.3kg cholesterol-packed Torta Gladiador (egg, sausage, bacon, beef, chicken and hot dog) is free if you can gobble it in 15 minutes – only 99 people have managed it in over two decades. If the torta defeats you, it costs M$255.
