When my father-in-law celebrated his birthday a few weeks ago, sister-in-law bought a cake from Porto's in Glendale. Porto's is a Cuban bakery with two branches and is supposely quite famous. But like I said, I've never heard of them before. When I tasted the cake, it was as I feared. Way too sweet for my taste, but hubby and kids seem to like it. And it was pretty. Sorry, I didn't think to take a picture, and hubby's family are not too into photos.
But the other night, hubby brought home some leftover Porto's potato balls from his sister.
These are essentially deep-fried balls of potato filled with a ground beef and I think, onion mixture. When I tasted them, I thought they were okay. I've tasted the combination before, but I started reading reviews on Porto's and it seems everyone was raving about these. So, someday I will just have to venture out there myself and taste a fresh potato ball or bribe someone to get a fresh one for me. In the meantime, yes if you're looking for something decent and very filling, a potato ball from Porto's will do.
