Cemitas & Clayudas Pal Cabron way before J. Gold...

Seriously, it's actually the newest naughtiest food child of the same family who brought the L.A standard Guelaquetza restaurants. This place is perhaps the only restaurant positive of making even the most pizza/flaming hot cheetoes-esque of my old East L.A Garfield High School homies become even the most diligent of austere foodies.

It's a concept that Bricia Lopez and her father Fernando Lopez brought to life after a recent trek to Puebla and discovering the delicate beauty of their street staple, a Cemita Poblana, the omnipresent sandwich of Puebla. Freshly baked, dense, rustic roll dusted with Ajonjoli (Sesame Seeds) and made with the legit stuff, not Crisco...yeah, you know what I'm talking about. Seethed with Milanesa, Quesillo, Queso Panela, Avocado, Chipotle, and the ever acquired taste of Papalo, an herb that smells like if a really thirsty deer just walked on top of it....

  1. Hey glutster, thanks from sharing a bite of this excellent cemita with me this past week.The cemitas here, from what I sampled are unique here in LA.I look forward to trying them this week.

    Thanks for the ORIGINAL review.What the casual observer didn't get, that I know you understand, that this restaurant is a concept pura Mexicana.For anyone that has ever watched Cero en Conducta, Sabado Gigante, El Gordo y La Flaca, Escandalo TV,El Conteo Sexy, or any other show with naughty comedy sketches involving curvy models will get Pal Babron.The innocent kind of naughtiness that is a big part of Mexican entertainment culture.What a fun and tasty restaurant.

    La Tetanic is the Pamela Anderson of Latin America, via Argentina,and as much a part of Mexican pop culture as Pamela is the the US.Great idea to name a cemita after her.She would be very prowd!!
