Pandan Tea Leaf cake ????? I loved it at this coffee/banh mi joint called Bale, about a block away from Chengdu Taste and now I they no longer have it. deeply despondent now.

the green hued pandan cake is like a cross between my tamagoyaki cross-pollinated with the apoteothis of the celestial firmament.

        1. Is it the baked kind? I would think you could get it at any Vietnamese bakery. Banh mi Che Cali, perhaps. Or the San Gabriel Superstore?

          1. I believe it is baked. Kind of like a pound cake but way better. Way way way better.

              kevin, with pandan layers? If so, look at any VN bakery or even markets like Thuan Phat on Rosemead, Hawaii Supermarket or SG Superstore.

              EDIT: ah, silleehillee mentioned SG Superstore. Very good.

                Nope. No layers. Just a uniform green color. Maybe a half dozen slices sold in a shrink-wrapped container for the princely sum of $2 at BaLe Bakery. And now they don't sell it anymore.
