The single disappointment of a dish was the torta milanesa. The sandwich was fine in and of itself, the steak pounded thinner than a pancake and topped with lettuce, tomato, avocado and mayo, with jalapeños served on the side. In my experience, a good torta overwhelms you with the sheer quantity of toppings; the meat is almost beside the point. Here the toppings were merely polite.

Really, though, it's a positive step that St. Louis has reached a critical mass of taquerias that we can discuss the finer points of torta construction rather than celebrate their mere existence. Besides, with a torta ahogada on its menu, Durango has already given us enough of a reason to celebrate.
