The part of Los Angeles where I am from has a lot of street vendors. They are pretty much seen almost everywhere usually in the corner of the block or in front of schools and businesses. I caught this lady who sells tamales and pan dulces not too far from my house. I saw her big container of empanada/pan dulce and I craved it right away. I used to eat these when I first started working almost everyday because a lady was selling it in front of the school I was working at.
I don't know the origin of this bread. I still gotta do my research on it. My friend said I can't call it Mexican bread because other countries in Latin America has their own version of it. The empanada/pandulce are filled with either some type of cream or pineapple preserve. They are a bit crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and they are very sweet. The best part is the price. They were being sold for 3 for a dollar ^_^
I know she doesn't have a grade A sign posted on her cart. Don't ask me if its clean or not. I'm taking a risk whenever I buy street food. I am not embarrassed to say that I have been buying food from street vendors for a long time now and I haven't gotten sick ( I hope I don't jinx it lol). Actually, the best tamales and bread I've had are actually from the streets and I'll leave it like that ^_^.
So I bought 3 for a dollar!
I got the one with cream inside ^_^ Sooooo good! I can eat so much of these.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
