Tortuga Bay has delicious Mexican food throughout its menu, but you come to this casual order-at-the-counter spot in Inglewood for one thing - the torta ahogada. A Guadalajaran regional staple, it’s a carnitas sandwich on sourdough, smothered with a spicy chile and tomato sauce we wish we could buy in bulk. Add in a carnitas taco on the side, and you’ve got an ideal quick-lunch situation.
