Gulf shrimp tortuga and cantaloupe agua fresca from Las Tortugas Deli Mexicana in Germantown, TN. 

Everything is amazing at this place. 



Las Delicias offers a selection of ten different tortas —
Steak
Chicken
Ham
Milanesa (sliced breaded steak)
Pork leg
Pastor
Chorizo
Egg
Cheese
Cuban (pork leg, pastor, ham and cheese; this one costs a little more)
— as well as a “combination,” which allows you to pick two toppings. Pork leg, pastor and Cuban are my standbys, but on this day I was struggling to decide. So, I ordered a chorizo and egg torta and nicknamed it “Mexican Breakfast Sandwich.”
At first I was hesitant to order eggs from a menu that includes few egg dishes, but in my many previous experiences at Las Delicias the ingredients have been super-fresh. This was no different. The ground sausage was spicy and the scrambled eggs were just crumbly enough. It was a little messy, but isn’t that the hallmark of a great sandwich?
As always, we started with an order of Las Delicias’ famous made-to-order guacamole and split a bowl of chicken tortilla soup.

I deviated from my usual and tried the scallop torta at Las Tortugas Deli Mexicana in Germantown, TN. Worth it!

From Taqueria Camino de Michoacan, Memphis, TN

Maybe I ordered the wrong thing, but this place did not live up to the hype for me. The baked goods looked wonderful though.

Chorizo and melted cheese. This is what I’m going to order next time I go, since every time I eat there I never touch my rice or beans. Why bother.

I don’t remember what this was. It was in my phone, though, and it’s from Happy Mexican in Memphis.
