Los Carnalitos parks in an unassuming spot across from a dry cleaner, and sells items you'd be lucky to find anywhere in the Bay Area. Their cemita, a hefty sandwich originating from Puebla, is delicious and well-constructed. The roll, fresh and specially baked by Taqueria Y Carniceria Apatzingan, is filled with beef milanesa, fresh avocado, stringy queso Oaxaca, chipotle paste, and a fresh herb named papalo.
Also on the menu are items they craft from fresh masa (they get the masa from La Estrellita Restaurant). Their giant masa quesadillas, huaraches, gorditas (fried, filled pockets of masa), and of course tacos all looked great. I'm looking forward to trying the pampazos, panuchos, gringas, suaquesos, choriquesos, and various meats. The owner(s?) are from Mexico City.
It's best to order ahead at (650) 315-5090 unless you want to search for shade while you wait.
