What bakery in Houston sells the best Tres Leche cake?
What bakery in Houston sells the best tres leche cake? Where are they
Let me first admit that I've never had the Tres Leches from here, but I've had a lot of different things and they are usually pretty outstanding.
El Bolillo has several locations. I visit the one on Airline across from Canino's.
Here's a link: http://www.elbolillo.com/
I would recommend it based on past experiences. I would think that to be as successful as they are, a good Tres Leches would be mandatory.
While you're on Airline, go next door to Flores' for spices, a block south to Houston Dairymaids for cheese, and another couple of blocks to Teotihuacan for cheese enchiladas.
It's one of my favorite ways to kill a couple of hours on a Saturday morning.
The Tres Leches at El Bolillo is very good. I can confidently assert it is the best I've ever had from a bakery since it's the only TL I've ever had from a bakery - I order it sometimes at restaurants, but not that often.
EB's TL has gotten a lot of props over the years on this board I think.
I take it you want to buy a whole cake since you're asking about bakeries? You can buy it by the piece at EB any day of the week if you want to taste it before buying a whole one.
Just thought I'd add my two cents to the Tres Leches cake recommendartions. My friend has been on a quest to find the best one in Houston. Not sure how many he has tried (many) but after eating the one at El Bolillo, he stopped looking. It was that good.. and truthfully, the price is great. $2.25 for a huge piece and isn't that sweet.
Radical Eats makes a vegan tres leche which we liked too, but it is completely different than the one from El Bolillo.
We did the El Bollilo vs Mi Tienda Tres Leches taste test this weekend. El Bollilo won. The frosting was the key to the win. Not too sweet. Also, fyi, Mi Tienda's slices are the same price but twice the size!
But, if you go to Mi Tienda, their fresh churros are much better than El Bollilo... and Mi Tienda has fresh corn tortillas.
