Pal Cabron – Closed
UPDATE: Closed in the summer of 2011.
Cemitas y Tlayudas Pal Cabron first opened in the small city of Huntington Park, where it became an instant sensation among food aficionados, grabbing the attention of LA’s food bloggers and commentators. Extending its success, Pal Cabron relocated to a more central location in the heart of Koreatown in Los Angeles. Since opening, the restaurant has been featured in LA Weekly and The Los Angeles Times.
Cemitas are Mexican sandwiches that the town of Puebla is famous for, while Tlayudas are sort of like pizzas with a crispy tortilla-like crust from the region of Oaxaca.
Pal Cabron also serves Antojitos (appetizers) like tacos al pastor, tacos árabes, chalupas, huaraches and memelas. Available drinks include horchata, micheladas and Mexican soda such as Jarritos, O-key and Boing. This is also a good place to grab popular Mexican snacks such as Takis and small Carlos V chocolate bars.
