Welcome to Donut Deli -- Breads
Cemita: A specialty of Puebla now found across Mexico, this five-inch, round, egg-washed bread topped with sesame seeds is similar to brioche, only drier. In most parts of the country it is just another bread, but in the city of its origin the fluffy roll is beloved as the foundation for the cemita poblana, a sandwich of meat and cheese topped with avocado, onions, chipotles en escabeche, and the pungent herb called papalo.
Telera: Popular in Mexico City, the crust of this ridged, seven-inch roll is softer than that of bolillos, but inside it's firm and dense. A sturdy vessel, it's the bread of choice for making tortas.
