Two of my friends from church mentioned one particular item here–Spanish rolls. I had never heard of the item or the place. They explained that Spanish rolls are rolled up bread with butter and sugar in the middle. The bread is basically the same as pandesal (sp?). They really raved about it and said that they are famous for this.

I went to check it out yesterday–3 for a $1; they’re shaped like pig in the blanket and are about 3 inches long. The verdict? They were nice and airy and light. I also liked the fact that they weren’t too sweet or buttery. Supposedly they make this all the time, so you should be able to get it fresh. Mine tasted fresh, but they were hot out of the oven.

Personally, I wouldn’t drive out of my way to try them–although it may be super good right out of the oven, but what baked good isn’t? I can see how other people really like these, though. I gave one to my co-worker, and she really liked it. One of the secretaries at Farrington confirmed that this is a well-known place and that everyone gets the Spanish rolls there. You’ll have to decide for yourself.
