On my way back from visiting the new Fiesta I stopped off at this location of El Bolillo. I’ve heard about it for several years and been meaning to check it out when I was over this way. More recently, I’ve seen several comments that it really is the best one at least in part because of the parking situation.
Well, I’ll certainly have to give them that. Scads more parking is only a slight exaggeration - but of course, if you know the cramped parking situation on Airline Drive, you realize that wasn’t hard to do. And Wayside at that point, just off I-45 (on the west side) is as heavy or heavier traveled than Airline.
The building looks much larger on the exterior but I’m not sure there’s actually more space inside. I wandered around, picking up far too many pastries and a couple of teleras, but mostly succeeding at averting my eyes when I got close to the display cases with the Tres Leches.
Nothing, unfortunately, was fresh and warm out of the oven. I was there around 4 pm.
It didn’t really hit me until I got home but I saw no tortillas, although I think I saw a tortilla press machine. Maybe I just missed them.
This one is way, way, way closer to me; I’ll be giving it more visits, I’m sure.
And WHOA!, I see by the website they’re planning on opening another one in Pasadena next year. WHAT??? None on the SW side or Far West Houston?
