  1. Here's an old thread you might find useful, http://www.chowhound.com/topics/34533...

    My favorite alfajores are from Villa del Sol in South San Francisco.

        Those are really good. Great texture.

      2. just out of curiosity, are the standard or chocolate alfajores sold at Ritual Roasters
        any good?

        i'm will to take the $1.75 x 2 hit for "research" purposes, but i can just give it a
        thumbs up/thumbs down but cant provide much in the way of comparisons.

        ok tnx.

        1. Caffe Centro on South Park in SF sells an excellent alfajores...chocolate dipped and non. They're supplied by a bakery...just don't know who/which one. I'm sort of glad I don't know which bakery...just like I'm glad I don't live within walking distance to a really good bakery like Bake Sale Betty. $1.25 per.

          1. I'm pretty sure that they sell them at the Pasta Shop on 4th St in Berkeley. I haven't tried them, though.

            1. One to avoid is the Dolce Vita brand, locally made, packaged and sold at many cafes. Ick.

              1. Taquería La Bamba in Mountain View has excellent alfajores. Cannot remember the cost, but I think they were over a dollar each.
