Los Taquitos de Puebla
Posted by Tom R. on 03/13/2011
We first had their tacos at Headhouse Farmer's Market, and then found the actual joint on S. 9th st. Not much decor, atmosphere but the food is very good. Sundays they have special lamb dishes. Al pastor tacos may be best in city.

The Cemita al pastor was one off those revelatory experiences like the first time having a real roast pork or that first Banh Mi. Just an incredible sandwich and they use Sarcone's rolls! (or at least we saw the Sarcone's truck delivering something there one Sunday morning ) A more elegant description of the sandwich in some NY restaurants from the NY Times' Julia Moskin on 4/30/2008: CEMITA POBLANA A cemita has the familiar look of a Big Mac - until you bite into it. To absorb the layers of spicy meat, soft avocado, fluffy bread and the thick flesh of whole chili peppers is to leave the fast-food nation forever. Poblano food is famous in all of Mexico, said Raúl Hernández, a restaurant worker who was polishing off a cemita at Los Girasoles in Woodside, Queens, last week. Pining for regional Mexican food used to be sad sport for food lovers in New York, until the city got lucky in the late 1990s with an influx of immigrants from the state of Puebla. (Many of the kitchen workers in the city’s best restaurants are Poblano.) Papalo, a fresh herb with the bite of watercress and the breath of cilantro, gives lightness to a sandwich that can weigh a couple of pounds at the outset. Without papalo it is not a cemita, said Tony Quintero, an owner of Kiosko, in Port Chester, N.Y., a once-neglected Westchester County town now revived as a destination for excellent, authentic Latin-American restaurants. Mr. Quintero’s pork butt al pastor, marinated in citrus, chilies, cinnamon and cumin, then crisped on a griddle with shreds of pineapple, makes the best cemita around. Order it without the lettuce and tomatoes, concessions to American sandwich convention.
