The mini options let you try a greater variety!
As I was happily exploring the Somerset food basement one day, a bright blue sign caught my eye and informed me that there was a new kid in the block and its name was Dinata. Making a beeline for the stall, I was greeted by a dazzling panoply of both sweet and savoury pastries lined up prettily below the counter. Trust me, my heart stopped for a moment in bliss.
I ordered a Hazelnut Cornucopia ($2.20), which is essentially a crusty pastry encased in an exterior of icing and filled with hazelnut cream; and a Chocolate Doughssant ($2.20), a crossover of a doughnut and croissant. While I was pretty impressed by the Cornucopia due to the cream not being saccharine sweet, allowing a slight hazelnut taste to shine through, I was not impressed with the Doughssant as it was not as flaky as I hoped for it to be. In fact, it was slightly lou feng. However, apparently one can request for it to be reheated upon serving. Perhaps doing that would allow its full potential to be unleashed!
The next time round, I would love to try their savoury options. One already caught my eye, and it comes in the shape of a chicken drumstick hohoho. It may also be good to note that for most of its pastries, Dinata does offer a mini version which is close to half the price of a regular sized one. That means trying more types of pastries for the same cost, woohoooo!
