Montevideo bakeries

Short post, sorry! I’m in honeymoon so I might not take time to write properly..

We arrived in Montevideo and on the way from the airport bus to the hostel I had to stop for cookies.

Walking down the 25 de mayo street we passed not one but two windows full of gorgeous sweets.

I was resisting the urge so far until I saw those cookies/biscuits. The color and texture reminded me of some cookies that used to be made by a Jewish brand in Sao Paulo.

Those bakeries are a sight to see. The display window is completely full of the most amazing sweets. From strawberry mini tarts to chocolate heaven..

Why did I not chose the most scrumptious sweet available instead of getting one relatively bland.

I tell you why: because making something bland taste great takes much more skill and great ingredients than to make something fancy.. If they placed the bland cookies on the window they took pride in it and I was curious if they are up to the task.

Newsflash: They are.
