Merengue Bakery and Cafe revisited

My farewell food tour is underway! Since I've shared with friends about my upcoming departure from Los Angeles at the end of June, I've been treated to several "one more time" and bon voyage meals at some of my favorite places.

This is the Cuban-style Caprese sandwich from Merengue Bakery and Cafe in Monrovia. The pop of yellow is mariquitas - or plantain - chips. Thin, crispy ribbons with just a shake of salt are the perfect accompaniment to the mozzarella, tomato and basil. Yummm!
