La Golondrina Cafe's flan
THE SECRET? The orange juice. (Carlos Chavez / Los Angeles Times)

Dear SOS:

I recently had dinner at La Golondrina Cafe on Olvera Street. Their flan was the best I have ever eaten. Would it be possible to get their recipe?

Dear David:

This recipe, from the L.A. Mexican restaurant established in 1924, combines a silky, rich custard base sweetened with condensed and evaporated milks. The subtle hints of vanilla and amaretto pair perfectly with the orange-infused caramel topping.
