The other day, I stopped by one of my favorites taco trucks for lunch. The truck is called Garnachas Rivera and it parks across from the Carrboro Crossing/OWASA on Jones Ferry Road most days. I've eaten there quite a few times, always tacos, which are outstanding. I like the "weird stuff", so tongue, tripe and the like. This time I decided to try a menu item I hadn't had before called a pambazo. It's a smaller sandwich than a torta and the bun is soaked in red salsa. It was a little messy but the flavor was really nice. It had meat (I opted for carnitas) and beans topped with lettuce, queso anejo and crema. The flavors really came together well. I will definitely add it to my order again. I've begun to explore Mexican sandwiches, which I've previously thought paled in comparison to the taco. This sando really changed my mind.
Other than tortas, which aren't too hard to find, are there good Mexican sandwiches to be had in the Triangle? I'm specifically looking for cemitases or pepitos
