Hi fellow chowhouders,

We are new to LA and I am dying for my families cuban food. I was wondering if anyone knew where to find: Scachatta, Deviled Crab, Papa Renella's. Tried Verislles no luck :( Anyone have any ideas, will travel!

    I can't help you with the first two since I've never seen scachatta in LA and wouldn't cast my eyes on deviled crab, but papas rellenas are available at Tropicana Bakery in Downey or at Porto's Bakery in Glendale or Burbank (and soon Downey). You can get them cold to reheat at home if you like.

    I'd try Tropicana first, only because they have a sit-down restaurant attached and are more likely to have things like crab.
