Best Place to Get Your Saturday Mexican On

La Estrella Bakery

Maybe you had too much tequila the night before, or maybe you're going to a weekend potluck and need something to impress your friends. Either way, don't fear the typical weekend scene at La Estrella: a line of people holding pots or other large containers, waiting to get their share of the eatery's delicious menudo. Bring a pot yourself, and while you're at the counter handing over your pot, go ahead and peruse the warm tortillas and tamales. Get some of those, too, along with the best cochito cookies (gingerbread pigs) around.
