REALLY GOOD
1st BLUEBERRY AND CREAM CHEESE BREAKFAST PASTRY
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Had to finally get rid of the puff pastry that was stagnating way too long in the freezer. Topped a few rounds with tangy, lemony cream cheese filling and S. African blueberries.
2nd CURRY PUFF
POLAR PUFFS & CAKES - SGH, 1 Hospital Drive Block 7 Singapore General Hospital Singapore
“Crispy buttery pastry filled with spicy curry, diced chicken and onions.” One of my fav places to get a curry puff, although I was slightly floored by its clamshell config (see 3rd pic in series).
PRETTY GOOD
4th NYT COOKING’S MATAR KACHORI
Soots Cook Nook, Private
‘Tis the season for celebrating some light in a dark year, with some Rajasthani street food, in the form of these fried pea-filled pastries! 🔥
5th SORRENTO'S FAMOUS VANILLA SLICE
The Vanilla Slice Cafe Sorrento, Sorrento
A ton of vanilla-flavored custard sandwiched between puff pastry with a coating of powdered sugar on the top layer.
7th ICHIGO DAIFUKU CHOCOCRO いちご大福チョコクロ
St Marc Cafe, Singapore
My first time trying a CHOCOCRO, a pain au whatever floats your boat (and limited by what's on offer). The CHOCOCRO is a signature item that's been around > 15 years. This one's a seasonal variety that combines strawberry, red bean paste and mochi. Very Japanese-tasting because it reminds me of strawberry Pocky sticks.
10th CURRY PUFFS
Rusnah Cafe, Singapore
Decent filling and filling:pastry ratio. But I wasn’t a fan of the pastry which seemed hard in a chewy way and not terribly flavorful.
11th PASTELITOS DE MEMBRILLO
Confitería Luis XV, AAC
Had to try these because they looked really interesting and were filled with quince paste.
12th PASTELITOS DE BATATA
Confitería Luis XV, AAC
These also looked interesting and were filled with sweet potato.
13th FACTURAS COMUNES
Confitería Luis XV, AAC
Danish with what I think was quince jam.
14th TORTITAS NEGRAS
Confitería Luis XV, AAC
I think these were sweet rolls topped with dark sugar.
15th FACTURAS
Confitería Luis XV, AAC
While in BA, facturas everyday!
16th BLUEBERRY CREAM CHEESE DANISH
Soots Cook Nook, Private
I think I got it. Or something that more closely approximated a cream cheese Danish.
17th CINNAMON PALMIERS
RedMan by Phoon Huat @ The Star Vista, Singapore
They’re offering product tasting at the supply store! I sampled one and it was crispy, buttery and cinnamon-y. I thought it tasted a little of ground almonds as well.
18th CREAM CHEESE (UN)DANISH
Soots Cook Nook, Private
AKA Sooty Somehow Created Something Else. First attempt at Danish but I think I messed up the turns, so my efforts did not bear what most would consider to be a Danish. This was more like a brioche. Still it was pretty good: lemony cream cheese filling encased in buttery, soft bread. A serendipitous bake, perhaps?
JUST OK
19th FRENCH APPLE TURNOVER
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Finally rid myself of the puff pastry dough I made (what feels like eons ago).
NOT FOR ME
