Tortas WashMobile Partners With Novo Brazil To Bring First Pop-Up In San Diego

NOVO Brazil Brewing Company has partnered with Tortas WashMobile to bring the renowned Tijuana eatery to its Lane Avenue taproom in Chula Vista once a week, alternating Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning this Thursday, February 16.

Tortas WashMobile is known as Tijuana’s first and longest-running torta stand, which was named for its location in front of an old car wash.

60 years of serving its famous Mexican sandwich

The family-owned torta shop, which is in its 60th year of business, brings Chef Pedro Fuentes (nephew of WashMobile founder Manuel Hernandez) to the pop-up stand at NOVO to serve the famous Mexican sandwich.

WashMobile uses brisket for the carne asada, panela for the cheese, which is best for grilling, and a soft roll that comes from a private baking company in Tijuana.

First ever Tortas WashMobile pop-up in San Diego and the U.S.

This is WashMobile’s first pop-up for the general public anywhere in San Diego, or in the U.S. for that matter. Private events are the only other way to enjoy their delicacy. Nearly 500 tortas were sold in four hours at the partnership’s pilot event at the end of January.
