Portugese sweet rolls?

This post is more in line with your regular topics than my first one.

Many, many years ago, when my girls were still in grammar school, we went on a vacation to Massachussetts. In the greater New Bedford area, there is a fair-sized Portugese population, and a few of their bakeries.

Our hostess treated us to some most delicious sweet rolls called "Malasadas." (spelling is guesswork.)

Since then, I have scoured the So. San Francisco/Daly City/Pacifica area, as well as Half Moon Bay, in search of a Portugese bakery. No luck.

I now live out by Antioch in the far eastern side of Contra Costa County. Has anyone ever heard of these sweet rolls, eaten them, or know where I can buy some?

Thanks for any info...
