Carnitas Cemitas

IMAG0124
Just by looking at images of cemitas I couldn’t tell what was the difference between a cemita and a torta. They sort of look similar but according to Wikipedia, cemitas are served in a sesame bun and usually with “sliced avocado, meat, white cheese, onions and red sauce (salsa roja).”

There needs to be more places like Fast and Fresh in my neighborhood! For $6 I got the carnitas cemitas. This was delicious and filling! Don’t think I could’ve eaten a 2nd one but I sure wanted to.

  1. fast and fresh! their breakfast tortas are awesome. ask them for extra salsa and jalapenos (if you ask extra-nicely, they’ll fry up the jalapenos into the egg mixture.)
