Tres Leches Cake -- Delessio vs. Tartine? [San Francisco]

sheriff | Jun 7, 2013 08:17 AM

Hi - I need to get a tres leches cake for my wife's b-day tomorrow, and I'm wondering which one to get. We've had the one from Delession before and have enjoyed it. The cake has a very nice, custardy texture but still is a cake, not a gloppy mess. My one critique is that it could have used more strawberries (we only tried the individual slice and it had one strawberry). We've also heard good things about Tartine's version, but I think it's pretty pricey. I'm wondering which the experts prefer?

PS - We've also thoroughly enjoyed the tres leches cake at Market Hall in Rockridge, but are city bound and can't make it over there to pick up.
