Yamazaki Boulangerie Chaude has some of the prettiest bakes I’ve even seen, and what first caught my eye was their homemade cream puffs. Needless to say I had pretty high hopes when I bought some of their bakes home, including their Strawberry Cream Puff ($2), Curry Bread and assorted mini pastries.
The puff was heavenly – fluffy pastry topped with light, sweet cream, fresh strawberries, and dusted with icing sugar. The mini pastries were as good, and I especially like those with their sweet chocolate glaze. Their soya bean mochi, encased in soft bread was quite tasty as well. Sadly their curry bun fell short of my expectations. When I bit into the bun, my mouth was dripping with oil and the crust on top was soggy. There was hardly any curry at all, and the oily bread was very unappetising. Still, Yamazaki’s sweet treats have me hooked, and I’ll surely return to give the rest of their pastries a try!
