Breads Bakery

Since I love to travel I make a to do list of all the places I want to see and eat in the world. Slowly my surely I am checking them off one country at a time. I also have a to do list for my own city, NYC. The funny thing is I rarely work on accomplishing that list. I feel like the places won’t go anywhere so I can always come back to them at another time. However, that’s not true. The economy has forced a lot of places to close so by the time I go to do them I can’t. My friends and I wanted to go to lunch during our break. I decided I should cross a place off of my list. So I decided we should go to Breads Bakery on east 16th.

The place is a bit pricey, but then again it is NYC. I arrived an hour early (long story). I wanted to buy everything. I had just gone to the bank and my new twenty was itching to be spent. I wound up ordering 3 potato burekas (it’s a Sephardic savory pastry), 2 feta burekas, and 3 spinach burekas. I also ordered 4 chocolate rugelach. The guy teased with me that I was ordering for a party. It came out to $15. I got back to my table and 2 rugelach were missing. I went back to the counter and apologized. They gave me one for free. While I waited for my friends the place got packed. People were buying and eating the most delicious breads and pastries. They were also giving out samples. I decided to eat my potato burekas and I was in heaven. Yummmmmmmmm. I knew I needed to buy more.

My friends came and we chatted for a while. Flora ordered a tuna sandwich, hot chocolate, and two rugelach. The rugelach wound up being too sweet for her. They are made Israeli style so lots of chocolate and some honey. Passcell ordered an espresso looking drink and burekas. I ordered 3 more potato and 2 poppy seed rolls (they looked amazing). The rolls were so soft and yummy. I enjoyed the rugelach they transported me back to my breakfasts in Israel. The feta burekas were beyond delicious and I regret not buying more. The spinach were great as well.

I’m so glad I got to cross this place off my list. Time to cross another one off soon. I can’t wait to come back and buy more burekas from here.
