I came in excited and left disappointed. I came in to tryout their “dossant “ and “brioche.” The Staff of 5 was busy at the time I came. One was helping a Korean customer, two were doing bookkeeping, the other two were helping take a delivery.
I waited patiently for my turn, however I noticed after helping the Korean customer, they went on about their work and for some reason could not see me standing right in front of them at the counter. So I waited patiently again for what felt like 15 minutes. Nothing…so I polite said “good afternoon” to get their attention and proceeded to inquire about the “dossant” and “brioche” bread.
I ordered the hazelnut dossant and it tasted like chocolate and in fact I think it was. From what I know of the industry if I were to return it, it comes out of the employees salary for the mistake so I went on to eat it. My impressions are in comparison to the WildFlour in Manila “Cronut: the brioche version too mushy. I could no longer sense the layered texture of the crossiant element. I was disappointed.
As for the brioche, I have no other brioches to compare it to, so for now I will simply describe it as soft, fluffy, and slightly sweet sort of like an ensamada with no cheese.
But even though I left disappointed, I still have plans of returning to try their other delights since I’m sure just because I had one bad experience doseent mean future visits will be the same.
UPDATE: I tried the apple cinnamon “dossant” and it is much better than the chocolate version. The apple filling does not over the flakiness and crispiness of the croissant element of the pastry. So. I guessing I just picked the wrong one or came in at the wrong time.
