Paige wrote about the chile relleno torta from Tacos Morelos yesterday, but I've got to say, of the sandwiches we tried, the Barbacoa Cemita ($6) was my favorite. The expected beans, mild white cheese, avocado, and tomatoes join soft shreds of steamed goat meat; it's super-moist and fall-apart tender, reasonably mild but gamey enough that you can't forget it's goat. Chipotle and mayo combine for a smoky spicy sauce that holds it all together.
