Like a Hitman, Like a Dancer

Like a hitman, the carnitas torta at Pinche got the job done. It's definitely not as pinche good as some of the places in Sunset Park like Speedy's and Rico's but what it lacks in pure taste pleasure, it makes up for in size. It's pinche enormous. It's like a loaf of Wonder Bread stuffed with pork, beans, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and salsa verde. Pete went into instant pinche food pinche coma so he headed across the street to Gimme for a coffee. Still not pinche satisfied and desiring something sweet, Pete thought it would be fun to contrast the torta's size with that of the really pinche mini cupcakes at Baked by Melissa; alas, the line was pinche at least 250 tortas thick--stretching all the pinche way to Broadway. Like a dancer, Pete thought quickly on his feet and made his way over to Grandaisy Bakery on Sullivan Street for a pain au chocolate. It was like a dancer dating a hitman, the croissant was graceful and light, but the chocolate was hard and dangerously good.
