Several bites into my delicious queso cemita at Taqueria Coatzingo -- and an ominous crunch.
Granted, it was a multi-layered, densely packed sandwich involving chewy, sesame-studded bread and not one, but two, ample portions of stringy, soft queso (Oaxacan?) wedged between layers of shredded lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, beans and a mild, smoky chipotle pepper "spread."
That crunch was my flip-in-and-out false front tooth succumbing to the cemita. Is density the sign of a good cemita? Or do I need a better dentist?
Definitely a memorable dining experience. Full review of our meal to follow soon. Until then, I'm attaching a photo of the dread cemita.
