Custard horns at Karina's

Melanie Wong | Dec 22, 200311:12 PM

Last weekend, I stopped at Karina's bakery in Petaluma to grab a quick bite. I tried the tlayuda this time, topped with milanesa. Unfortunately, this turned out to be the first thing I've had here that was truly dissatisfactory. The giant tortilla was tough in parts rather than crisp, and the milanesa tasted stale. The melted stringy Oaxacan cheese on the giant tostada-like assemblage was wonderful, as was the mole.

Since I didn't finish this, I had room for dessert and passed over the wonderful tres leches cake to try one of the custard horns. A flaky pastry cylinder is filled with beautiful, silky custard. I'm sure it would have been even better earlier in the day before the pastry had a chance to soften. But even so, it was really good.
