Fountain Square – Tortas Guicho Dominguez y el Cubanito

I’ve lived in Indy for about 30 years & have never been to the Fountain Square area of the city.  I had the opportunity to check out “Tortas Guicho Dominguez y el Cubanito” for lunch last week & I’m already planning to return this weekend.  The name is a mouthful so I’m just going to refer to it as the “Torta Place”.

The place is small but bright and clean.  The food is all made to order so it might take a mew minutes longer than you would expect (it’s totally worth it!).  All of the sandwiches are named after celebrates (or you can order by number).  I had the #12 named after the Mexican Footballer Rafa Marquez.

The #12 has Breaded Steak, Mexican Sausage, Ham & Mozzarella.  Unless requested differently All Tortas comes with mayonnaise, tomato, avocado, homemade jalapenos or chipotle.

Two sauces and a small bowl of pickled vegetables come with the order and you can order a Mexican Coke (with cane sugar) or a Jarritos (carbonated, flavored soda).  I opted for a Diet Coke but I’m thinking about getting a Mexican Coke next time.

The Chorizo on the sandwich was really good with a nice spice and very tender texture.  I was not sure what to expect with the “breaded Steak” but it far surpassed my expectations.  The sandwich alone was enough for lunch but I also want to try their tacos at some point as well.

If you’re already in the area, this place is a must visit.  I drove from the North-East side and I’m willing to do it again.
