Dessert for a potluck
Where do people like to go to get dessert to go (for a potluck) in Boston, something on the ethnic/neighborhood side rather than upscale. JP/Roxbury/Dorchester/Roslindale area if possible. Thanks-
In Dorchester, I might check out Ba Le, a good Vietnamese bakery with a variety of East Asian not-too-sweets.
If you can make it into the downtown area, Chinatown has a variety of great Asian bakeries, my favorites of which are probably Ho Yuen and Mei Sum.
And if you want something a little more conventionally Western, I'd hit Maria's in the North End for Italian cakes and pastries.
Sweet in West Roxbury has an excellent choice of cookies, pastries, cakes, etc. I especially like their raspberry or apple pillow cookies.
Go to Whole Foods. The tart with the fruit on top of it is outstanding and not that expensive.
