What is it? Not to be confused with its brash younger brother, the torta, the cemita is a sesame-topped egg bread sandwich that hails from the Southern coastal city of Puebla, Mexico. It contains tons of ingredients, including jalapeño and chipotle peppers, red chile sauce, avocado, and buttery soft Oaxaca cheese, among others.
Where to get it: Don Panchito
This Williamsburg food truck -- featuring a lovable, mustachioed mariachi-hat mascot -- serves a wide array of authentic Mexican fare at the intersection of Bedford and Metropolitan. There are several cemita options on the menu, but the move is to order the off-menu cemita lengua, made with surprisingly good cow tongue. The tender meat manages to absorb the flavors of the rest of the fillings, and the sandwich is so hefty, you’ll have trouble finishing the whole thing yourself. The truck is also open late, making it ideal for lunch, dinner, or a 4am post-drinking snack.
