Cemita Poblana (Mexican sandwich) in Hartford-Manchester area?

Can anyone recommend a restaurant or bodega in or near Hartford or Manchester Community College (or along the route between them) that sells cemitas, a type of sandwich from Puebla, Mexico? Good al Pastor, chile enchilada or tinga would be a plus.

Quoth Wikipedia:

A cemita “is distinguished from a torta by the fluffy sesame-seeded egg roll that it is served on. Additionally, the ingredients usually are restricted to sliced avocado, meat, white cheese, onions and red sauce (salsa roja).”
