Su Pan Bakery in Poway
Poway has become a multi-cultural melting pot. You can find bingsu, lumpia, tacos and açaí bowls - all on one street.
I had a craving for pan dulce and so I found Su Pan Bakery. (Your bread). This small bakery is in a plaza with the Floaties Swim School, across the street from the library. It is a cute bakery with coffee, danishes, cake slices and Mexican pastries. I wanted conchas. Conchas are a pan dulce made with rich, slightly sweet bread dough and then topped with a thin cookie dough top. A design is sliced into the top to make them resemble shells. I already had one and is was excellent - soft, rich and not overly sweet. Perfect with coffee.
I also picked up a pastry that looks like a pig. I’m not sure what the filling is, but I’m excited.
