Looking for Tres Leches cake

  • 11

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...).

        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.

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

        1. 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.

                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.

              2. King Ranch Markets...locations in Altadena, Monrovia, and Covina.

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

                  1. Vallarta Markets.
