Toothsome Threesome Coffee Cakes
< Supermercado "La Regional", Little Rock, Arkansas >
Located in south Little Rock, near the corner of Baseline Rd. and Chicot Rd.,precisely 7414 Baseline Road; it is an excellent store in which to buy all sorts of Latino foods and products. There is a carnicería, a small dining room serving pupusas, antojitos Mexicanos, soups and lunch plates.
There is even a hat department! The store is busy, in my opinion, because the product line is extensive, the store is well-arranged and clean, and the prices are reasonable.

Sopa de Ajo
This simple yet delicious soup consists of lots of chopped peeled garlic cloves cooked in olive oil until lightly golden but not browned; chicken stock, Spanish Pimentón, and tomato puree (optional).
Toast croutons with melted aged cheese, (eg, Parmesan, Romano, Manchego or Asiago) on top. The soup was garnished with dollops of thinned sour cream (creme fraiche preferred) and some fresh basil leaves we had on hand.
The style of this version of the soup is similar to that of the Restaurante "El Tragadero" in Zacatecas, México, although not identical.
Pizza alla Casera 1
Pizza with a homemade tomato sauce, homemade spicy sausage, onions, fresh mushrooms, Asiago cheese and Mozzarella cheese.
The perforated pizza pan gives the crust a nice crispness.
Pizza alla Casera 2
The dough for the pizza crust is simple: flour, yeast, water, salt and a drop of extra virgin olive oil are slowly fermented over many hours.
Thick cut boneless centercut porkchops, coarse polenta, fried apples. A nice Sunday breakfast.
The porkchops were dredged in a mixture of cornmeal, flour, salt and chile to give them a good crust when pan-fried.
The apples were slice cored but not peeled, then fried in butter, in the same skillet in which the pork chops had been cooked (on "hold" in a low temp oven). The apples were sweetened with a little sugar and spiced with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
