Pambazos at the Mexican Maya Company, Ponsonby International Foodcourt, Auckland
By the time I thought to document the Pambazos, I was halfway through my meal - this was the first time I'd tried it. We had to wait an extra long time so I paid no mind when I dug in, the pambazos' 'buns' are deep-fried with potatoes and salsa in the middle, accompanied by salad, salsa and rice. All for the grand sum of NZ$10.51. I mention this because I've often thought the Mexican place to be a bit on the steep side, this dish totally disproved that though.

And in between the buns, yummy potatoey, cheesy, lettucey.
