The Tortada Primer

From "Mike":
"Tortada" doesn't mean anything in mexican cuisine, I believe it means "cake" in Portuguese or maybe in Spain, but in Mexico there's no such food.

Tortada is probably a mix of the words tostada and "torta". A "torta" is basically a sandwich made with hard bread. There's many kinds in Mexico, and sometimes it's called a "telera".
