Tres Leches, Pizza, Carnies

We tried the tres leches cake (successfully distinguishing it from flan this time — Mrs. Me is better about desserts than I am) from Caramelo Bakery (11301 Georgia) and it was good, not great, consistency was right but they added unnecessary strawberry jelly layers. Looked like birthday cake.  We also ate more of their excellent empanadas.

Meanwhile, everyone seems to like Pacci’s Neapolitan Pizza (8113 Georgia) in Silver Spring. We will get there eventually.

Also there’s carny food at the Wheaton Mall’s “Westfield Carnival” through July 4. Just don’t eat too many corn dogs before you get on the Tilt-o-Whirl.

  1. I agree that the tres leches cake from Caramelo was a bit of a letdown. For the price I was expecting much better.

    We’ve been to Pacci a few times and while the service can be spotty when it’s busy, the food is worth it. I hope this is a restaurant that sticks around.

  2. I have to admit that I’m a fan of the Tres Leches cake at Cubano’s in Silver Spring. Nice and moist.
    Also put me down as a fan of Pacci’s – good pizza, although my experience is just from take-out not from dine-in so I can’t comment on the service.

    Pacci’s: great on weekdays, but avoid on weekends. The latter is when both the food and the music will be disappointing, at least in our experience (that is, undercooked pizzas, annoying club music).
