Del Sol Super Tortas takes over Laura's space

Del Sol Super Tortas opened Friday in the former Laura's Super Torta's space.There’s a new tenant in the old Laura’s Super Tortas space at 1425 E. Central.

On Friday, Hasan Mahamud and a partner opened Del Sol Super Tortas. Mahamud, who owns Central Liquor right across the parking lot, said Laura’s closed several months ago. (How this escaped my attention, I’m not sure.) He took over the building, and for now, his restaurant is offering Laura’s exact menu. He’s made a few changes, including switching to a higher quality cheese, he said. And he plans more changes, including adding more tacos to the menu.

Mahamud is planning a grand opening on Nov. 20. He also plans to open a Mexican grocery store in the adjoined space. It should be open this weekend and will be called Express Mart.

Del Sol Super Tortas is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call 316-269-4494.

Chat friends who I promised I’d get to the bottom of this torta mystery: You’re welcome.
