Where to Get the Best Conchas in El Paso According to Yelp
A cold front is blasting the Sun City and keeping warm is on everyone's list. A
People across the Sun City are busting out their San Marcos cobijas and finding different ways to stay warm, including having a little bit of pan con cafecito.
It's the most delicious way to keep warm (aside from a bowl of caldo)- a little bit of Mexican sweet bread with a cup of warm coffee. I won't tell you which type of sweet bread you should be eating with your cafecito, but I HIGHLY suggest that it should be a concha!
Conchas are a traditional Mexican sweet bread roll. Conchas get their name from their round shape and their striped, seashell-like appearance. A concha consists of two parts, a sweetened bread roll, and a crunchy topping. They also go great with hot chocolate.
Conchas are not hard to make, at least according to my mom, but with so many great local bakeries, I prefer to buy them. Nothing beats walking into a panaderia and having the smell of freshly made bread hit you all at once!
I'm sure many people across the city have their go-to place to buy sweet bread- if you're not sure where to go, check out any of these places that have the best conchas- at least according to Yelp (Again, this is ACCORDING TO YELP not according to me!)
