Bite into the best Mexican sandwich in the West

You can add the cemita poblana to the list of Mexican delicacies that make eating here an endless adventure. This superstar sandwich from Puebla is taking the streets by storm with its fluffy egg bun piled with marinated pork or beef, jalapeño chiles, herbs, cheese, onion, and avocado. Is your mouth watering? Make a trip to Southern California to taste our favorites:

  • Taqueria La Poblanita (714/520-9481), Anaheim: The beef cutlet for the milanesa de res is pan-fried before landing in a hot, crusty roll.
  • Cemitas Poblanas Elvirita (323/881-0428), Boyle Heights: The slow-roasted pork carnitas is like the best Southern barbecue—but better. 3010 E. First St.
  • Angelica’s Cemitas Originales Truck (213/909-4027), Venice: The milanesa de pollo is the best fried chicken sandwich in SoCal.
