Bigworm’s Bakery and Deli, a place where you’ll find anything from mouth-watering doughnuts to savory uso fries or an usorito. They are also well known for their specialty cronuts.

Owner Kenny Kong aka Bigworm, opened Bigworm’s three years ago in July.

“The name comes from the movie ‘Friday,’ which people gave me when I was in high school because my hair was like the character Bigworm,” said Kenny. 

Kenny always had a passion and love for food and wanted to have his own shop. At the age of 8, he baked his first doughnut. 

“Guess it just runs in my blood,” he said.

Having many different ethnicities in his family, Kenny studied their ways of cooking and has since showcased what he’s learnt and “[wants to] keep the culture alive.”

At Bigworm’s you can find foods from Polynesian, Hispanic, Filipino and Asian cultures.

“You just get a little bit of everything,” said Kenny.

The top three sellers are:

  • Uso Fries: fresh cut fries, uso sausage, shredded cheddar and monterey cheese, house sauce, house mayo and smokey barbecue sauce
  • Glazed Donut Burger: Bigworm’s glazed donut, two patties with cheese, two slices of bacon, one egg topped off with house sauce
  • Abomination Sandwich: housemade French bread, ham, headcheese, pate mayo, cucumbers, jalapeños and homemade Cambodian pickled veggies such as papaya, jicama, carrots and daikons topped with cilantro.

Kenny is big on giving back to the community, which he says has been nothing but supportive. 

“I can’t thank the city of Stockton enough. Everyone has been showing nothing but support and love,” he said. “Not just Stockton, but also everyone who drives just to come get our food and pastries. I can’t thank them enough.”

He hopes to keep offering “sweet tooth goodies to satisfy your hunger.”
