Tampopo Deli

29 March 2010


Here's saying a big thank you once again to a very sweet person who gave me such a thoughtful and lovely surprise birthday gift. I've always wanted to try Tampopo Deli's prized Cream Puffs, and word has it that if you've tried Tampopo's you would never look at Beard Papa's puffs with the same admiration anymore, nor would you buy it as often. Before, I've only been able to stare longingly at Tampopo's cream puffs paraded and raved so extensively on some of the food blogs, and so it is thanks to this sweet friend who braved the heat and long walk for this craving to finally be satiated.


And it's not hard at all to see why these cream puffs are so prized. The pastry is crisp but not as hard as Beard Papa's, and has some lightness under the crust. The winner has to be the awesome vailla custard cream, where you can spot vanilla beans aplenty and can just fall in love smelling the vanilla. The cream is very, very smooth and gushes out with each bite - heaven. Cool it further in the fridge, and even if the custard wouldn't "flow" as much now (like the picture above), it will be delightfully cold like soft-serve ice-cream! Now I know why these puffs are snapped up the minute they are baked every hour. Lucky me, I got not one, not two, not three, but six of these special cream puffs :)


Like a glowing halo amidst the darkness and rain.
