Mexican cuisine is known for its savory dishes such as tacos, quesadillas, burritos and more. A group of cooks recently got together in Mexico’s capital city to assemble the largest torta sandwich. In a video shared by news agency Reuters, we see a large gathering of cooks from various restaurants assembling sandwiches that are unique to the country. The feat was accomplished at the 17th annual Torta Fair in Mexico City where a 74-meter, or 242.7-foot-long sandwich was made. According to reports, the massive sandwich was assembled in a record-breaking two minutes and nine seconds. Each part of the torta came with its own distinct flavor. Since it is a sandwich, restaurants use their own special recipes and prepare the torta with ingredients that include a choice of meats and vegetables. Portions of the torta came with a special sauce. After the Torah was completed, event attendees had the opportunity to sample sandwiches.
