Chicken Tinga Torta at T&T Tacos and Tequila

You’re not alone if a sandwich isn’t the first thing that leaps to mind when someone suggests getting Mexican food. But it should be. The recently revamped menu at T&T features three delicious new tortas, sandwiches served on soft bolillo rolls, made fresh at a local Mexican bakery. Chipotle and tomato put the tingle in the shredded chicken that is heaped on top along with chipotle aoli, black bean puree, lettuce and pico de gallo. The tortas come with house-made kettle chips, or opt for a half sandwich with your choice of soup or salad combo for the same price. You wouldn’t have been able to finish it anyway. $13, in Luxor, 262-5225, TacosAndTequilaLV.com.

Wood-Grilled Lamb Kabobs at Union

Little pockets of heaven, more like. Union executive chef Jeremy Saccardi marinates overnight then skewers fresh boneless Colorado lamb before grilling over hickory and mesquite wood. Fresh, locally made pita dough is toasted to-order in a brick oven, then wrapped around the grilled lamb along with English cucumber slices, teardrop tomatoes, house-made tzatziki sauce and a little micro-mint. These mini gyros make a nice mini dinner, too. $21 for three, in Aria, 693-8300, LightGroup.com.
