Woodland: amazing Mexican sandwich, "panbazo"

beanbag | Feb 1, 200401:18 PM

On a whirlwind trip to the Sacramento/Davis/Woodland area I stopped in at Cuatro Milpas, a tacqueria located at 534 Main St. in Woodland -- the place had been mentioned in a Georgeann Brennan article in the SF Chronicle about Yolo County. The panbazo was really an unexpected surprise -- a Mexican sandwich on a regular soft white-bread roll, but containing chopped-up chorizo, potato, crema, onions, quesa fresca, lettuce and salsa. As Brennan notes in her article, "the real surprise is that both halves of the roll are dipped in enchilada sauce and grilled before being filled, creating a panini-like sandwich with a steady, lip-stinging burn." The roll was very soft, having sopped up the sauce, thus making it a perfect envelope for the spicy fillings.

At $3.95 for a very large sandwich, it was a steal and the best thing I ate in the Sacramento area.
