Mexico City is known for its delicious and fulfilling torta sandwiches. Earlier this month the city’s residents took their love for the local dish a step further and created the world’s longest torta sandwich in just two minutes and nine seconds.

The world record was broken in the Venustiano Carranza neighbourhood during the 17th edition of the annual torta festival.

Cooks from various local food establishments and volunteers came together to make a 74-metre(242.7 feet)-long sandwich. The sandwich weighed almost 800 kg.

As reported by Reuters, servings from the sandwich were made available to the attendees of the fair for 35 pesos (approximately 1.5 dollars or 118 rupees). The sandwich was divided into different sections. Each section had a distinct flavour based on the regional chefs who were involved in preparing it.


One could pick their serving from classic fillings such as chicken, pork and beef, while the more adventurous eaters could make a pick from exotic fillings such as venison, ostrich and crocodile.

They mean love, they mean getting together. At least in my house we cook tortas when the family is together and we all put our favourite ingredients in them.”
