If Veracruz had an official sandwich, it would be pambazos, also affectionately called pambacitos. They are lovely little yeast buns that you split and fill with something irresistible, like beans and chorizo. At a glance, a pambazo looks a little like a Sloppy Joe, but the resemblance ends there. Pambazos are among the best yeast rolls I’ve ever eaten, a tender and delicate contrast to the rich flavors of the fillings. They are a favorite dish at cenadurías</
