Las Tortugas

712 Peoria St.
Aurora, CO 80011

What’s not to love about the panini-like tortas that Las Tortugas puts out in just a few minutes? The cooks take one of those pointy Mexican white buns, split it and swab both sides with mayo. For the Hawaiiano, roast pork, pineapple and cheese are layered with veggies and guacamole. Then the whole thing is pressed in a griddle until crisped and the insides are molten and yummy. In lieu of beer, sip a pineapple agua fresca (fruit syrup blended with ice). **
