Cemitas y Clayudas Pal Cabron

**Sadly, this restaurant is now closed**

Pal Cabron was the perfect way to celebrate “National Sandwich Day” (11/3/10), but of course I’d eat this cemita EVERY day if I could!

Pal Cabron's La Cabrona w Quesillo
A cemita is a Mexican sandwich that originated in the city of Puebla. Lucky for me, my friend Bricia owns TWO Cemita shops right here in L.A. (links below). Pictured above: La Cabrona w Quesillo cheese: Beef & Head Cheese

Pal Cabron's Clayudas
Pal Cabron doesn’t just sell sandwiches (it’s so much more)! A clayuda (or Tlayuda) is sort of like an Oaxacan pizza. I first tried it a few months back with the awesome StreetGourmetLA (aka Bill Esparza). I’m now addicted to the stringy Queso Oaxaca cheese. Pictured above: Clayudas Combinada

Natura Bar
Thankfully, my friends Julie and Brent joined me for this Pal Cabron FEAST, which included trying out several new drinks from Natura Bar next door. I’m not a fan of sugary drinks (any sweets really), so I really loved the subtle, fresh flavors.

  1. glad you liked this place. Bricias cemita have come a long way since its bread-y inception in Huntington Park and its looking better than ever.

    PS. Nice money shot btw 😉

  2. Hey Jo! Great sandwich day munching! Love those lil’ chalupas, too. YOU’RE AWESOME.

  3. That sandwich looks to die for!

  4. Great post, but I’m pretty sure that you’ve got your chalupas and your arabes mixed up. That said, I love your cemita pic.

  5. Never seen or heard of that sandwich. Interesting to say the least. Will have to check it out when I’m in K town again soon!

    That’s all.
    Lovely pics as usual.
    OMG now I want a Tlayuda and some Quesillo… and a cemita.

  7. Your photos are amazing! Great details, I can almost smell and taste the food.
