Porto’s: Where everybody knows su nombre

Every weekend, there is a party at the intersection of Magnolia Boulevard and Hollywood Way. The whole neighborhood is here: young hipster couples, serious cyclists in their Ninja-gear, clumps of perfumed, color-coordinated grannies, and families–make that extended families. Actually, this party is a line of people waiting to eat. They spill out of the doorway and trail around the corner. The line moves fast, but they’re happy to wait– because it’s Porto’s.

In fact, people get giddy with anticipation. The words heard most frequently as we wait:

“Potato ball!”

“Papa rellena!” (see: “Potato Ball”)

“Meat pie!”

“Pastel de carne!” (see: “Meat Pie”)

“Porto’s made my wedding cake!”

“Porto’s is making the cake for my Quinceanera!”

“Mango Cheescake!”

‘Mango Mousse!”

“Tres Leches!”

This large Burbank location is one of three, the others being in Downey and Glendale. And every day, especially on weekends, the sweet and the savory fly off the shelves.
