Tasty Takes – Slices of Summer

Slices of Summer

This week, we feature some slices of summer from the corner of 25th and C Street in Golden Hill. On the right, we have a just ripened golden orange apricot from the corner fruit stand: Sweet, slightly tangy, with a hint of honey. They also have plums, nectarines, mangoes, papayas, and pineapples. You can also buy a fruit salad or an all beef hot dog, or bleach if you’re doing laundry next door.

The watermelon cookie is from Panchita’s Bakery. It’s a sweet sugar cookie with chocolate chips for watermelon seeds. Panchita’s is a Mexican bakery, or a panaderia. You walk in, grab a pizza tray and tongs, and load up. Then you wait in line, pay, have them bag it, and you’re on your way. If there’s a long line, while you wait, you can watch the bakers in the window, manipulating large mounds of sweet dough. Also try the tres leches cake, and the bolillos are five for a dollar.

    This looks so delicious, or maybe it is that I have a sweet tooth.

    Either way, I must stop by there for fruit and cookies/treats!

    Love it.
