East Boston Bakery serves Central and South American specialties

With so many restaurants going bankrupt during the COVID-19 pandemic, a Massachusetts company is one of many serving up delicious food despite the challenges of the past two years. In Thursday’s edition of “EyeOpner Eats,” we stop by La Casa Del Pandebono in East Boston — a bakery that serves Central and South American specialties. The Colombian, Mexican and Salvadoran restaurant in the Eagle Hill section of East Boston is owned by Fernando Rosas and his family. Fleeing gangs in El Salvador, Rosas moved to East Boston when he was 16, not knowing anyone in town. He has relied on the community since day one, which has been his company’s lifeline during the pandemic. “Everyone is so good to us, you know,” he said. “We’re lucky to be in East Boston. We are very lucky. Customers can enjoy classics, including their best-selling birria tacos. “It’s a Mexican technique, where you cook the meat for over 10 hours,” Rosas said. “The production for that, I had to triple it in the last six months.” They have eight different types of empanadas, including one stuffed with lobster. “The food is amazing,” said customer Brian Conley. “The customer service is excellent. I even sometimes have my daughter come over from Quincy to come and have lunch with me.” Roses. La Casa Del Pandebono offers an extensive menu for lunch and dinner and prepares custom cakes and desserts for all occasions.
