Beard Papa's Cream Puffs

Original Cream Puff
3/5 stars
I've passed by Beard Papa's over a dozen times, but haven't tried their cream puffs before. I really wanted to try their Matcha Green tea flavour and strawberry, but opted for the Original instead, since it was my first time. The cream puff itself is about the size of a clenched fist, for comparison's sake. The puff is sprinkled with powdered sugar on top. The dough itself is soft and flaky, and actually tasted salty, to my surprise.  The custard itself is really rich and buttery. It wasn't very sweet, there was only a hint of sweetness. However it was expected, as it is an asian dessert after all haha. The taste didn't blow me away, however it does make a nice dessert or light snack!




Pros:
-Isn't heavy or greasy
-Lightly sweetened

Cons:
-Expensive at $2 per puff

The verdict: The puff itself was good, not fantastic, but definitely made me want to try more flavours! 

Overall Rating: 3 stars
