78: The Torta El Rey from Tortas El Rey

Sometimes you have to try a dish just to say you conquered it. But unless you're a trained professional, that's probably not an option with this absurdly large torta. Instead of conquering this 14 layer monstrosity, you'll be overindulging for the kitschy sake of consuming a cartoonish menu item more family-sized than single serving sandwich-sized. Just make sure to have a whole contingent of carnivores on hand to finish off this feast.
