Porto’s meat-filled potato balls are a fave of chowhounds, including Dommy.

Well, turns out that Venice Bakery has even bigger balls, and they’re tastier too. Dommy received one as a V-Day snack (and chocolates too, we hear) and says the mashed-potato part is spiced as well as the filling, which is more like a true picadillo. Porto’s version is a bit more refined, and has more meat, but Venice Bakery’s potato balls will satisfy carb fiends (and Westsiders who can’t make it to Glendale or Burbank).
