Searching for Napoleon
Where can I find a wonderful, fresh & crispy Napoleon in Los Angeles?
It seems easier to find good tart tartins, and croissants but I love napoleons.
I live in Encino but would drive for something wonderful.
Try Natas, the wonderful Portuguese bakery on Ventura just west of Fulton. You won't be disappointed, and its close to you.
I empathize. I find that most Napoleons do not have a flaky pastry resulting in the filling being smushed out when cutting into it. While visiting my daughter in Burbank, I did find a decent dulche de leche Napoleon at Portos Bakery in Burbank. Not sure if it's offered all the time.
