When I talked about my first visit to La Sabrosita Bakery on Midlothian Turnpike (a great reason to save on toll money), there was a lot of energy in the comments. I popped by to pick up some more goodies and Mario was ecstatic about my blog post. Before I left, he pushed a ham’n'cheese empanada on me, fresh and hot out of the oven. Karen loved it! I had a bite from the end (without meat) and it was fantastic. But the real reason for this revisiting blog entry is to share a recent comment from the first post.
From Wendy (whom I don’t think I know personally):
Been in La Sobrosita Bakery many times, and I have not been disappointed yet! The huevo (richer) egg bread is just wonderful, and so is the new Puerto Rican bread! It is DELICIOUS toasted, and so yummy, crispy on the outside, light and chewy on the inside, so makes a great sandwich, but also terrific even if you don’t toast it. The cheese bread with the mozzarella cheese down the inside is fantastic, too! and , whoa, don’t get me started on the “FANTABULOUS “birthday (or whatever occasion) cakes! I’ve ordered 3 so far, two 1/4 sheet size and 1 that was 1/2 sheet size, all were absolutely BEAUTIFUL And DELICIOUS!! I’ve gotten rave reviews from all that were lucky enough to get to have some! I have ordered it each time with the fresh pineapple on one layer, fresh strawberries on the next layer, and with the whipping cream frosting with the tres leches , of course, so extra moist and fantastic! WOW! IT has been GREAT every single time! And, boy , you are sure right about Mario and his entire family! Everybody is just great…super nice, super friendly, and so helpful on letting me understand all the different types of breads and pastries, and in the refrigerated case the different fresh cheeses, etc,that are offered! I am soooo loving this place! If you haven’t tried it, you are really missing out! YUM YUM YUM!!!
