Three Kings Bread in the Bay Area?

Thanks, everyone. We ordered a pan de rosca from Casa Latina last year. Very beautifully decorated and tasty. This year we went French and ordered a Gallete des Rois from Boulange Bakery in SF. While it didn't have all the adornments of a "crown" - no figs or fruits - but it was SO delicious. Light with almond paste. Also, Boulange didn't bake the baby Jesus inside, but rather offer you a charm to place in yourself.

Dim Sum in Camarillo, CA.

Thank you! Your reply adds some comfort. :) Do the servers use carts to offer the dim sum?
Oh, I guess I can call the restaurant myself. Sorry! Many thanks again!

Does anyone have advice/thoughts on dim sum served at the Peking Inn in Camarillo?
We are pretty much bound to the area...unfortunately can make it to San Gabriel or downtown LA.
Many thanks!

That serves Shepherd's Pie and plays British rock. Or at least, has a juke box. Is this asking too much?

Help!

Three Kings Bread in the Bay Area?

Thank you Chefj. I had planned to check out both Mi Tierra and Casa Latina. However, I went to Casa Latina first and just purchased one immediately upon seeing them in the display counter. I am curious what the ones at Mi Tierra look like...may check them out later this week. Thanks again!

Three Kings Bread in the Bay Area?

Hi there,
I'd like to order a Pan de Rosca (Three Kings Bread) for this weekend. I'd like it to be as traditional as possible -- meaning, the inclusion of the little plastic baby Jesus baked inside. Any suggestions? Berkeley area would be GREAT!
Thank you!!

Bakery in Bay Ridge, BK?

I'd like to send my dear friend, who is a public school school teacher in Bay Ridge, a birthday cake for her birthday. I am in CA and would like to find a "homestyle bakery" in the area. I will arrange to have it delivered to her classroom. She works SO much and this would be such a treat for her and her students. Any suggestions?
