I live near this panaderia and patronize it frequently, merely because it's handy-- but the shelves seem always nearly empty and the pickin's are slim. (The cashier always lets me select from the baking racks.) But last Friday the shelves were FULL-- and everything was super fresh. The conchas were delicious AND the lady behind the counter sold us incredibly delish pork tamales wrapped in banana leaves. I'm not a tamale expert-- so can't give any more details over than I, my husband, and finicky houseguests devoured those tamales. So here's to yah, Clairemont!
El Chocorrol Panaderia, behind the Panda Inn on Clairemont Mesa at Genessee -- Friday mornings seem to be the DAY.
