Cemitas Puebla

I love having a nearby spot that I can rely on for a solid meal every time without breaking the bank, and that’s what I got when I found Cemitas Puebla.

Cemitas Puebla is a fast casual restaurant that specializes in cemita sandwiches. Cemitas, which get their name from the seed on the bun, are sandwiches originating in Puebla, Mexico (hence the name Cemitas Puebla.

Dress the part

Events are bound to pop up: weddings, cocktail parties, galas, special birthdays, engagements, baby showers, new years, your second cousin twice removed’s baby shower – the list goes on. And while you don’t always want to wear the same outfit, it can become extremely expensive to start buying dresses for every event you attend, especially when your events err on the side of galas and black tie.
