Some Sweet Argentine Delicacies

Happy Easter everyone... we had a nice time enjoying some splendid Houston weather. One of the delicacies we also enjoyed this Easter Sunday was a nice portion of alfajores from Asturias Bakery in Houston. Located on Dairy Ashford, just north of the Westpark Tollway, Asturias is a tiny but wonderfully authentic Argetine bakery. We picked up not only two varieties of alfajores but also some other delicious pastries. Outside the strip center bakery are a few tables, typically taken by Spanish speaking clientele enjoying their cortados. Stop by Asturias and pick up some delicacies for your next get-together or just to satisfy your sweet tooth.

If you're not in the neighborhood, you can get your Argentine fix at either Gianotti's at 6539 Bissonnet or the Original Marini's Empanadas Houston at 10001 Westheimer (in the Carillon) or 3522 S. Mason Road in Katy 0r Manena's Pastry Shop and Deli at 11018 Westheimer.

Glad to know, I'll be able to get some good Alfajores when I get back to Texas. Let me know when you guys are heading back down to Argentina.
