I went to a friends house last year for lunch and saw two huge cakes and a peach cobbler on the counter. I asked where she got them and she told me she got them from Ricos. I had never heard of it before but thought, if she would drive to Carson to buy baked goods, they must be good?
Well, I was right. The red velvet cake was absolutely delicious.It was flavorful, moist and light, not to mentioned iced with a walnut vanilla icing which was not overwhelming. The peach cobbler was dynamic. It had a lot of peaches, not too much sugar and a flaky crust that kept me coming back for more. As for the german chocolate cake, I don't like it but the others at the party really enjoyed it.
Being that the red velvet cake is so good, I, on occassion go for a cupcake or two.
Phils is a landmark in the Farmers Market. Everything served will not leave one disappointed and the service is ALWAYS nice. The chicken salad sandwich has to be by far the best that I have tasted in a of the Los Angeles delis. I don't know which kind of mayonnaise is used or maybe secret spices but it is delicious. I live in Long Beach and make it a point to buy a sandwich while in the area before coming home.
The french dip sandwiches are right on the money too, as the beef is fresh and not at all salty.
Delice is definitely a step away from France. My friend and I never imagined that we would be able to find baked goods that tasted authentic and fresh as we did at Delice last night. I ordered a tuna sandwich and she a pizza. The tuna sandwich was excellent! It indeed was one of the most tastiest and unique tuna sandwiches ever tasted, as it had a hint of dijon mustard spread on the french roll. My friend loved the pizza however was surprised by the kalamata olives that were covered by the mass amount of cheese.
We shared an apple tart which was absolutely delicious. It was something out of heaven. It was fresh, soft and very tasty. I suggest that all visitors try it.
The staff was very pleasant, well informed and speedy. This bakery also amazed me by its cleanliness. I will definitely return.
