Hope you feel better soon! you are lucky you don't have a sweet tooth like some of us =)


what a great find...hope you feel better soon!


This bakery used to be "Alice Cakeland" in the 80's, the first place in Chula Vista I was able to buy pan de sal at! Alice Cakeland was established as the place to get pan de sal before Valerio's came to town, if I recall correctly.

Before Alice, my uncle used to go to Goldilock's up in Los Angeles and bring back his van filled with Filipino baked goods.

We used to sing "Pan de sal! Pan de sal! Alice Cakeland pan de sal!" to the tune of the old Spiderman cartoon (try singing totally fits). Hehehe


Hope you're feeling better soon, Kirk. The Mister is coming down with something too.


something is definitely going around... mexico cooks looks very interesting, thanks for the link!


hi kirk
thanks for the shout out.

re: girly's comment - wow, I remember Alice Cakeland! she must be from down south too. that barings back old memories of ordering cakes there way back in the 80' parents would get their pan de sal from Emi's Asian Food or D'n D Asian food (they were Filipino places that no longer exist) near the Montgomery HS area. They were tiny places. One was in the strip mall next to Alpha Beta (remember that store?) Ha ha.

nice to see you blogging the south bay...


Hi Lynnea - I hope so too, sincee it messes up my tastebuds! Thanks!

Hi Kat - Thanks!

Hi Girly - LOL! Thanks for sharing the memories. The Missus asked me if I knew what you meant, and I sand that verse in key!!! ;o)

Hi Carol - It's no fun being sick..... hope he beats it.

Hi FH - Yes, Christine has a wonderful blog.

Hi CC - The South Bay has much to offer..... I just wish I had more time, and gas so I could go everywhere......
