I regularly make the pilgrimage from downtown Manhattan to Don Paco Lopez to take home a haul of pan dulce from this Mexican bakery. With locations in East Harlem and Sunset Park, this place has rows upon rows of incredible sweets like flaky orejas (elephant ears), campechanas (glazed caramelized puffs), conchas (cookie dough-topped buns), and so many more. They also have savory things like tamales, pambazos (red sauce-soaked sandwiches), and quesadillas or ‘quecas’ as they’re called colloquially.
