In Hobart / New Chicago / Lake Station, La Rancherita bakery and El Ranchero restaurant are my favorites. From Old Ridge Road, turn at the rooster statue onto Michigan Street (it's at 3559 Michigan St). The mural on the wall is pictured above and is a landmark. Their restaurant is busy at lunch time---free chicken-tomato noodle soup comes as an appetizer with the meal. The pan dulce Mexican sweet bread is 35 cents to 75 cents a piece. My kids love the watermelon-shaped cookies, and I like what my mom calls elephant ears (different from the fried dough at the county fair) that in Spain was called palmeras. Next time I am there I'll take a picture of those to share.
