Bread Lounge Bamba Cookies

Cookies Los Angeles

Bread Lounge, Ran Zimon’s bakery and cafe in the downtown L.A. Arts District, is best known for bread, pastries and sandwiches, but for me, bamba rule.

Bamba are bite-sized, halva-like peanut butter cookies studded with sesame seeds, and they’re my latest Bread Lounge obsession. On Saturday, I’d already ordered a passel of sandwiches, flatbreads and brownies. At that point, I noticed the cookies in a sample bowl by the register. Of course I popped a bamba in my mouth, and before I left, made sure to down one more crumbly, melt-in-my-mouth cookie. Bamba come in a big plastic container, and on my most recent Bread Lounge visit, since I already had two bags of food, I had to wait to take bamba home with me. Not that they’d last beyond the drive home.
