Porto's in Downey Has Opened! Today!
She knew that I had been waiting in the wings, biding my time, checking in for at least a year. It must be said we came close once, with Cafe Contigo in Anaheim, which merely imported the goods from the L.A. stores.
But that place folded two years ago, leaving me to routinely make the car trip to Glendale for my fix of soft potato balls, broth-gushing empanadas, fresh-baked cheese rolls, and their pastries, all those pastries!
Now, they're in Downey. And they're open.
