In case you missed its appearance on an episode of “Triple D” (Guy Fieri’s own slang for his ridiculously popular Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives), this Pueblan restaurant has a giant sign commemorating the experience. Locals just shrug, as they’ve long known that this is the place to score specialties such as tacos arabes, pork tacos with thick, pitalike wrappers that are the result of Puebla’s Lebanese influence. Here, these chipotle-spiked beauties and their friend the cemita milanesa (a breaded pork steak with cheese and avocado on a sesame-studded bun) are among the best of the menu, and unique finds to boot.
