What/Where is your favorite bakery for the best 'Dinner Rolls' in Los Angeles?
I will drive (a good hour +) for GOOD rolls for my family-
(Thanksgiving Dinner for 30). Thanks in advance!
I also love 'Monkey Bread' Mmmmmmmm :~)

      My favorite places for rolls are...

      * Bread Bar, especially their mini cheese one... PRICY and Call ahead...
      * Maison du Pain, for their Epi... Stunning and so YUMMY! Again, call ahead, especially durring the holidays...
      * Normandie Bakery... They make mini french bread rolls that makes my carb-loving dad swoon...

        Maybe not the best, but I have a soft spot for King's Hawaiian sweet rolls.

          These may not work for Thanksgiving, but the Mochi Black Sesame rolls at Mitsuwa on Centinela are delicious.

            Are these Mochi or actually bread rolls? I love Black Sesame... where in the store can you find these?

              I believe they're bread rolls with some mochi incorporated into the dough so that they have a little bit of that mochi quality to them. They're in the front of the supermarket part, to the left of the cash registers, where the packaged sushi is. They're really good.

            They're advertising Monkey Bread on the big board for the bakery in the Farmer's Market on Fairfax and 3rd. BTW, I love monkeys and I love bread, I think they'd taste great together, can you please elaborate on what the other ingredients are besides Monkey? Thanks.
