Missing my favorite cuban bakery, Portos, in Los Angeles. Anyone know anyplace in NYC that has potato balls or other cuban bakery goods?

    I don't know about other cuban bakery goods but Sophie's (it's a Cuban take out/eat in chain around the city) definitely has papa rellenas and pretty good empanadas in my opinion (try the meat one -- it's juicy and stuffed with meat, green olives and plump raisins.)

      I've enjoyed the papa rellena at Flor de Mayo (2 locations: Amsterdam near 83rd St. & Broadway near 101st). It's not served "dry", though. If I remember correctly, it has a sauce that you could probably have on the side.

        For the record, Flor de Mayo is Peruvian.
