Bellevue >Old Country Bakery
Delicious and cheap. I had a somewhat friendlier experience with the staff. The woman didn't speak very good English, but she asked how many we wanted and did say the overall price. For $2, we got a huge loaf of flatbread that we just started taking apart in the car. It was such a bargain. We also took a chance on some Armenian Sweet Bread, which was made of little breakable slices. It is amazing. There's some sort of filling inside and we actually stopped the car and went back inside to ask what it was. Unfortunately since she didn't speak much English, it was a little confusing, but I caught the word vanilla. When I gave her a big smile and said it was good, she smiled back. Good experience.
So it looks a bit scary... So What?. Oh man, this place rocks! From the rude guy behind the counter (didn't say a word to me, not even the total cost of purchase) to the somewhat off the beaten track shady-ness of the local (between Crossroads mall, and that park behind crossroads where you can always find a used syringe), the owners don't seem to care much about your experience in the time before you try their goods, and with good reason. They know that the second you try their baked goods, all bad feelings will be chewed away. My Choice: a cone shaped cake called "rambo" that is difficult to describe (but i assume due to the density and weight, nuts are a key ingrident) since I was to scared to ask the guy behind the counter what i was about to eat. All I know is, for a buck-fifty, it's well worth it. Chewy/crumbly, but miraculously tidy to eat, this "rambo" is really so rich, you'd be wise to split one with a friend, or just save half for tomorrow.
