Molotes in the Bay Area

I'm looking for molotes, a food I ate in Puebla, Mexico. The molotes there were made by placing meat on a ~9" round of thick but flattened masa, folding it in half with a loose seal, deep frying it, and then splitting it open to apply salsa and crema.

Whatever it might be called, is something resembling that description available around here?

"Molote" seems to correspond to a lot of different preparations, both in Mexico and here, and I've identified four places to check out. Has anyone tried these?

Molcajete in Oakland lists three molotes for $6.50, so it might be the right item, but smaller http://www.molcajetecocina.com/#!anto...

Vianey's Kitchen Mexican Food in Oakland sells three for $6.99, so it might be the right item, only smaller. https://www.facebook.com/VianeysKitch...

Tropisueno in SF descibes them as "cigars" so that doesn't sound right

Padrecito in SF doesn't give a useful description, but they cost $13
