Cemita What?

Cemita What!

This may be a sandwich you've never experienced . That’s ok. Allow us to explain.
Cemita What?
The Cemita is a sandwich, or more accurately, a torta, harkening from Puebla, Mexico. And oddly, is still spottily represented across this great land. Our version goes like this: choice of meat, veggie burger or seafood patty; a slab of pan seared queso blanco (crisp browned outside, cheesy gooey good inside), pickled onions, cilantro, avocado, and chipotle mayo for just pico spiciness, piled on a grilled sesame studded bun. 

A Mexican Big Mmmm-- made better. Because the Cemita Shack will have varieties STREET won’t. It’s fast, delicious food to remind you that sometimes the best thing to eat is what's going to make your taste buds and tummy swoon with joy, thank you effusively, then bug you relentlessly 'til you get them another. We may have a drive-thru, but the Cemita Shack isn't fast food. It's fast good.
