New Location for El Bolillo Panaderia

Lovers of Mexican breads rejoice. El Bolillo Panaderia is in its brand spanking new and bigger location across from the Farmer's Market at 2428 Airline. It's one-stop shopping for Mexican breads and pastries in a truly festive atmosphere with lots of neat artwork and graphics all over the place. Be sure to check out the domed ceiling.

The name is a play on words as bolillo is also slang for "white guy," in this case Kirk, the owner, who several years back took a shot at doing a real panaderia at the suggestion of the Mexicano bakers at his family doughnut shop.

I love to grab a hot churro and a cup of hot chocolate and watch the bread come out of the oven. It's also a great place to people watch. -- Jay Francis
