From El Jorocho- mentioned below in "best of 2008". Carnitas (braised pork) with lettuce, tomato, cheese, jalepenos, avacado, an unknown cilantro-esque herb and mayonnaise on a sesame seed bun. Not unlike a taco/roast pork/cheesesteak hybrid and should be the new official sandwich of philadelphia. Delicious.

Also Los Taquitos De Puebla is rumoured to have amazing Cemitas, including the "Cabeza de res" made with "beef head meat". Nice.

i think it's called culantro. in the same family as cilantro but with longer leaves.

yeah it was similar in flavor as cilantro but stronger and with bigger leaves, like baby lettuce sized.
