UFO – Unidentified Filipino Object

Josquared posted about this little Filipino bakery, the "Home Of The Señorita Bread".

Although he didn’t buy any, he described señorita bread accurately “sweet bread that kinda' looked like a pointy mini-loaf with a carmelized sweet bottom and light texture”

They are actually little rolls about two inches long and are sold by the dozen (white or wheat) or hot from the oven ... $1 for three.

They only had the hot version in white. It was soft like Pillsbury Poppin Fresh croissants. The bottom was brushed with a whisper of caramel similar to a sticky bun that was sweet, salty and buttery all at once.

I guess just like a senorita - petite, delicate & sweet.

This is really a pocket place with less than a dozen items for sale. Josquared pretty much described the whole menu.

As for the 75 cent UFO – it was long, thin and skinny, like the palms given out on Palm Sunday, but was probably a pieces of banana leaf.

Inside was a glutinouse strip that smelled strongly of tea ... or fish sauce ... maybe some sort of sticky rice. There could have been a touch of coconut. Not bad but not something I’d order again. It began with a the letter “T”. After the third time I asked, I gave up. It wasn’t on the little menu.

Thanks Josquared. This is a very cool, inexpensive place that I’d definatley stop by again. It’s in the Long’s Plaza on Sonoma Blvd almost across the street from Goldilocks.
