I enjoy your Rose Parade float posts as a preview to watching it on tv. I went to LA this past Saturday, and stopped at Porto's in Buena Park. It's a huge bakery, and at 9am, the line was snaking outside like at a theme park. I don't think I saw turkey-gravy potato balls, but at least I got my fix of the regular ones.


amazing floats and meals!


Thanks, Sandy-the tradition of watching the Rose Parade while wearing new (Christmas gift) pajamas from the snowy Detroit neighborhood where I grew up and wanting to somehow participate 'when I grew up' is just a wonderful achieved bucket list item. Isn't Portos magical? So fresh, such quality and so very good. (If you can get to the Kolache Factory in Tustin, their Kolache of the Month is turkey with dressing and gravy).


That elk is a showstopper, Kat. Both meals were excellent that day.


I did stop at Kolache Factory and Cream Pan! Those are my regular stops on the way to LA, but this was my first time stopping at the Buena Park Portos.


Wow! That's awesome Porto's had pan de muerto. Thanks for the float update.


Wow, good price on those dim sum.


Great minds, Sandy; I may run into you one day! We are thinking of Portos for our 'after decorating' dinner (because I always want soup everywhere and it's not available until after 11). Then again, we've tried quite a few new to us places this year.
Yes, Soo- got an email and it was only available the week before All Souls Day (November 2). It had orange peel and was very eggy.
Started 'research' on dim sum after we came home, TFD. The prices up there are excellent. Ocean Bo (after the Fourth road tes) was reasonable, too. t

Yum, I love Porto’s


Breakfasts, lunches, dinner, snacks, desserts and beverages, ST! Such a wonderful family run business.
