Looking for Tres Leches cake

r
Ringo Gato Nov 21, 2009 09:35 PM

Can you suggest a bakery / panadería or restaurant that sells memorable Tres Leches cake? I prefer locations in southeast LA County (Long Beach, Lakewood, Hawaiian Gardens, Bellflower, Downey, Lynwood...) or nearby OC (Cypress, Los Alamitos...).

      El Molino Bakery at Hawthorne Blvd and Marine S/E corner is by far the best hands down.

            i have to disagree on this. we bought it once, and it was not to our liking.

            i've had a good experience, ironically enough, with the TL from Pavilioin's at Vine and Melrose. Perfectly moist and soaked, as we like it.

              Superior Market has a great tres leche cake. We recently had the tl cake with bavarian cream filling and whipped cream frosting for a reitrement party. Everyone raved about this cake. Not too sweet and extremely moist.

                Liborio Market makes a good one. I think there is one in the Huntington Park/Bell area.

                  I noticed Animal in Hollywood has it on their menu too.

                    Hollywood and Burbank seem a bit out of the desired area. See if there's a Vallarta Market down there. Some of them (not all) have a pretty good tres leches.
