South Bay: Pink Elephant

I thought I'd posted about Pink Elephant before, but I guess I was delusional.  Sorry.

I swear I took pictures of the Mexican bakery before, but I can't find it anywhere.  Not on my computer, not in my external, and not in my phone.  Or my sister's.

Am I really delusional?

Sigh.  Anyway, Pink Elephant is a Mexican bakery that we discovered because it's close to my parents' community garden.  TT wanted to check it out, so after a day of learning how to make spring rolls from TT's mother, we swung by.

I don't have a picture of the outside, but hey, look!  Baked goodies abound!:

More baked goodies!:

Pink Elephant has all kinds of empanadas:

Pumpkin and guava are interesting and all, but my favorite is still the custard:

TT wanted to try the flan:

It's not Pink Elephant's fault, I'm just not a fan of flan.  Something about the texture of it just throws me off.

I do, however, love the pretzels:

Back in high school, my friend, Nana, used to bring me bags of these pretzels at a time and I would EAT IT ALL.  In fact, for my 21st birthday, she got me an entire tupperware box of pretzels.  I was in pretzel heaven for a week.

If I remember correctly, this bread was stuffed with cream cheese:


Love how cheap everything is at Pink Elephant.  Bring lots of cash though.  It's easy to go overboard once you see all the sweets laid out before you.
