Mexican Bakery Novice- what to try?

lemonseleven | May 27, 2014 08:33 AM

I recently found an amazing Mexican bakery in my little midwest city. The place was beautiful and I was overwhelmed by the huge selection of pasteries, cookies, empanadas, etc - probably 100+ different items. Not being very familiar with Mexican baked goods, I stuck with a few things that looked somewhat familiar- i bought churros, something croissant-like (but with an interesting creamy filling), and a kind of thick, almost pudding-y cornbread that was amazing, along with a few tamales and some mole sauce. Everything I bought was great, but I'd love some suggestions on what to look for when I go back. The items were not labeled, so visual descriptions would be helpful. Thanks!
