Pink Orchid is a popular bakery on Westwood Blvd. with a massive dessert case filled with everything from cheesecake to tiramisu to chocolate mousse. It’s all good, but we recommend concentrating mostly on the case next to the dessert case. Here is where you’ll find their tremendous sweet crispy bread spiced with cardamom, and most importantly, the piroshkis, which are deep-fried buns filled with housemade custard. To put it simply, they’re perfect. The dough is light and pillowy, the custard is tart, but not sour, and the sugared glaze on the outside elevates all the flavors without overpowering them.
