My first time inside Rocio’s Bakery on Grand. This is the same place that I saw this poor Dora the Explorer cake in the window. There were a lot of flies inside, but they got an A rating, so what do I know.

I ordered the Bistec a la Mexicana ($7.50) and a tamale. The steak and rice platter had avocado, refried beans, peppers and onions and came with tortillas. It was surprisingly tasty, especially with their green hot sauce. So much food. It was like the equivalent of 8 tacos. I should have quit half way. I came home and passed out for the rest of the day.

    Any idea on who makes these? Truly a maestro with the icing. It’s incredible how they can make green icing look like frosted moldy moss.

    I think this place was closed by the IRS a day after you wrote this review.

        I know. So lame. Worst part is, I never went there because a dumb friend told me it was dirty. You’d think by now I’d know that dirty really means delicious.
