Chicken Izo – Pablo Picante’s Tortas, Clarendon Market

The long famous Pablo Picante Burritos in Dublin has a branch out business right next door that specialises in the gourmet Mexican sandwiches known as Torta’s. They definitely live up the the name.

Beautifully soft french bread wrapped around Roast Chicken,  Chorizo, Black Bean Puree, Jalapeno Alioli and sprinkled with spinach and rocket. The result is a beautifully sumptuous lunchtime delight. As a first torta for this reviewer, this sandwich hit the spot in a big way. It was juicy and oozing flavour with a small jalapeno kick.
