I went to the El Mercado Fresco. They are having a grand opening sale, so I tried a cheese filled Bolillo Roll with sesame seeds. These are big football, oval shaped rolls. About 8-10″ long with sesame seeds on top. Mexican bakery goods are generally, not as sweet as American pastries. This isn’t even a pastry, it’s a roll. They are cheap, $1 for 3.
I just now tried it after swimming. BOY that thing was good! The Jalapeno in it is in big pieces, nearly a whole piece of Jalapeno so you can easily discard it. There was a LOT of cheese, concentrated in the belly of the roll. Very crumbly and tasty mild Mexican cheese. That was very good. This cheese had that crumbly texture. A little bit like cream cheese, only it had more flavor.
The roll itself was very soft, I think they just baked it. That thing was great. It’s not really a dessert, but I ate it after eating 3 Sambusas (little meat pies) from the Safari Cafe. The Safari is a Somali restaurant.
BOTTOM LINE: I am gonna get these rolls again and again!
Update: whoop those things are $1 each..they changed the price. So not that good of a deal.
My cup, it runneth over.
