Cemitas Puebla

Antonio showing off his tasty cemitas to Miguel

Cemitas Puebla, 3619 W. North Avenue, received a special mention as best Cemitas (a Mexican sandwich on a sesame seeded bun) in “Bon Appetit” so Miguel and I though it was worth a trek, even after a late February snow storm to see for ourselves.

We loved the “pastor” sandwich, with Oaxacan string cheese, avocado and tasty pulled pork meat.  Their chipotle sauce in the yellow bottle was great on the sandwich, just as Antonio had suggested; followed by a tasty Jamaica (hibiscus tea) and Horchata (rice milk drink) we were happy and all for about $10/person.

The North Avenue bus is just 3 blocks north of us and will take you directly to Central Park where you are 1/4 block away from cheery Antonio and Cemitas Puebla.
