West Long Beach

Long Beach Food Scene Intel: Harbor closes in DTLB; El Esquite opens in West LB; more

Long Beach Food Scene Intel is a series from Brian Addison that will recap food news throughout the city, both news that needs just a quick mention or repeated news where you might have missed the full features.

Gemmae’s Kamayan plates are an ode to Filipino food’n’family—and will be only available for LB Food Scene Week at Gemmae Bake Shop

Also on special for Long Beach Food Scene Week from Gemmae will be a special collab pastry, where Don Papa rum and Edam cheese are combines for a sweet'n'savory treat.

Celebrating 30 years, West Long Beach’s Gemmae Bake Shop has been the heart of the Filipino food scene

As we celebrate AAPI Heritage Month, I take you on a trip to Gemmae Bake Shop, a westside bakery that has been feeding the community with everything from ube halaya and pancit to cheese mamons and ube & macapuno ensaymadas.
