Merengue Cuban Bakery in Monrovia, CA

This bakery is located in downtown Monrovia on Colorado Blvd. and Myrtle Ave.

The potato balls are delicious, and they are three times bigger than the potato balls at Porto’s!

The beef empanada had a flaky crust, and the beef mixture was very flavorful.

I ordered the steak chimichurri sandwich and the mariquitas (fried plantain chips).  The steak was very tender, and the herbs and spices in the chimichurri sauce complemented the beef well.  My only complaint is that the beef was a little too oily.  The mariquitas were thinly sliced and slightly salted, and they were a great accompaniment to the sandwich.
