A cemita is a Mexican sandwich similar to a torta. Where a torta is served on a French roll that can be crunchy or soft, a Cemita Poblana is served on a round sesame roll, and grilled to a perfect crunch that balances the lush lamb barbacoa, avocado, panela cheese, onion, cilantro and chipotle. Cemitas Poblana Don Adrian in Van Nuys is a tiny storefront in a typically seedy Van Nuys strip mall, but aren't those the best places to eat? Three tables, a line of people out the door, families, a carniceria/abattoir next door grilling impressive mastodon size ribs and carne asada out front, it was quite a scene.
