boxed alfajores in DC?

  • m

My roommate is from Argentina, and he's been on the receiving end of a few boxes of Havanna Alfajores (http://www.google.com/images?q=havana...). However, this is not a reliable enough source for me. Is there any place in the city/DMV I can buy these (or similar)? I need my alfajores mas ricos!

PS. I've heard there are places that sell the fresh ones around here. I'm sure those are delicious, but they are not exactly what I want.

    1. Rodman's on Wisconsin Ave by the Friendship Heights metro has them.

        I went to Rodman's and while they did have alfajores, they are not the Argentine variety with dulce de leche in the middle sandwiched by soft cookies. They look like alfajores and are labeled as such, but it has to be some variety that I'm not familiar with.

        I was able to find dulce de leche, mate, and dulce de membrillo but no argentine alfajores :'(

      2. Vace's in Cleveland Park carries Alfajores and dulce de leche.

          1. Sorry, the link to buy them online is at the end of the short article I posted above.

              1. Hey Missh, I was doing a little research on a alfajor business and i ran into your post. my siblings and I are starting and thought I would let you know about our boxed alfajores with dulce de leche made fresh every week. We are still small but we have been making our family receipt for years and now we make them for some restaurants as well as graduations and birthdays. If you are still looking for some and want to check our fb page out, facebook.com/ericasalfajores, we can send you a free box over the mail within a day and the cookies are delicious.

                1. I was walking by the Dolcezza in Bethesda and they had a sign advertising alfajores (for what it's worth they describe themselves as an Argentinian gelateria).
