Pamola Bakery & Deli – Tacos and Lemon Bar

Tacos at a bakery? I must have walked by this bakery a number of times and never noticed that they also serve hot Mexican food too. I guess I can’t be blamed too much… this shop in the Quay has a large display of pastries that you would find in most regular bakeries.

Chronic Tacos (New West)

Mucho Burrito (Market Crossing)

We’ve been to the Mucho Burrito at Market Crossing before and tried their burritos… they weren’t bad.  This time, we decided to try something a little lighter so we went with their “gourmet” tacos.  Read the rest of this entry
