Cocohodo for walnut pastries in Sunnyvale
There are already several outposts of this Korean chain in socal, but they finally opened one up here late last year and I stopped by on Sunday morning.
They make little cakes filled with red bean pastry, the center of which is a walnut. There's a fascinating machine in the kitchen that takes batter and walnut and spits out the pastry.
It smells wonderful inside - like any place that's baking pastries, but especially like Beard Papa.
We got the "snack pack", which contains 9 pieces for $3.50. Each piece is individually wrapped, which unfortunately means they get a little soggy.
I found the red bean a bit too sweet, but there's a childish pleasure in finding and crunching the walnut. I actually think they taste better cold.
Same plaza as Palace BBQ, but in the other building.

Cocohodo is near Hankook Korean Supermarket, next to India Chaat Cuisine on E. El Camino Real in Sunnyvale.
It's a small cafe that sells drinks and the Korean red bean pastry with walnuts inside.
They make them fresh there and the machines run continuously and it's fun to watch.
