I fancy myself a pseudo-concha-connoisseur, so I head to this Bed-Stuy Mexican bakery for a concha shopping spree. It's a tray-and-tong situation here, so load up on all the typical pan dulces like conchas (including bright blue, green, and seasonal designs like pumpkin), cuernitos, and a decadent dulce de leche cake. There are also seasonal specialties like pan de muerto (orange zest-flavored Day of the Dead bread) and Roscas de Reyes (“King’s Wreath” decorated with multicolored candied fruit peels eaten around Christmas).
