The Czech Cachito [On The Run: Houston]

I went to Houston for work and what was my surprise to discover a Czech delicacy. They call it Kolaches but they are actually Klobasnek, and in Venezuela the similar thing it’s a Cachito. A Savory baked pastry, yeast rolls prepared with a sweet dough, filled with ham, cheese, eggs, sausages, and/or jalapeños.

The ones with sausages are similar to what we call in the UK a sausage roll. I tried most of them, the ham and cheese is exactly as a Venezuelan cachito with the difference it comes in a round shape. Great flavour, and perfect for breakfast. 

Take away time
The place to go to have them is Kolache Factory, a franchise with 21 shops in Houston and many more around the US. I got a couple orders for take away, great treats for breakfast.

Pastry reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Summer of George” 

Jerry: No, you had a good run. Took them to the World Series
George: I got to give the players most of the credit for that
Jerry: Don't sell yourself short. You made all the flight arrangements, hotels, busses
George: No, I don't know who was doing that
Jerry: So, when you actually did work, what it was that you did?
George: They had a pastry cart you wouldn't believe
