Have you had cemitas?


I’m taking today off. No teaching. No blogging about important issues. Just a few words about Cemitas Puebla.

It’s on North Avenue in West Humboldt Park. We went by today for lunch. 

What are Cemitas?

They are a Mexican sandwich from the state of Puebla. Kind of a torta, but better. The roll is covered in sesame seeds. They spread avocado on the bread. Next is a layer of chipotle pepper mashed with a home-made adobo sauce. Then meat of your choice. I had it al pastor. Leigh and Candy had pork milanese. Then a layer of shredded Oaxacan cheese. Unbelievable.

We also had a plate of chalupas. Five of them with different sauces and cheese.
