Don’t forget about our traditional Rosca de Reyes coming up this January 6, 2014.
We make Tamale’s all year long but the colder it gets, it’s seems the more popular they become! We’re overloaded with orders in the winter months, so don’t forget to place those holiday orders well in advance. And if you haven’t tried our Tamale’s, stop in and pick some up today.
Pan De Muerto is a type of lightly sweet Mexican bread traditionally baked during the weeks leading up to Dia de los Muertos which is celebrated November 1st and 2nd. Usually lightly sugared, this bun shaped bread is known to be adorned with bone like shapes. It’s customary to enjoy your bread at someone’s grave but it’s usually just a fun family tradition reminding us of our loved ones that have come and gone. Stop in today and enjoy some traditional Pan De Muerto!
Birote Salado is similar to the bolillo however it has a thick, crunchy crust and softer interior which is more salty than sweet. Tortas ahogadas are typically made with Birote Salado because consistency of the bread permits the sandwich to be submerged in sauce without crumbling or dissolving. Sadly it can be hard to find even in Los Angeles, but we make Birote Salado daily. Come and try some!
In the meantime, feel free to explore out the many other breads we offer daily.
