These cream puffs are to-die-for! The name is a bit strange though; "Beard Papa's" *duh* (why not "Mole Momma") and I was skeptical when I saw the stall at Pavilion KL (same floor as the food court), but I could not resist. The puff was HUGE and fat so you'll be a tad worried to buy too many, but once you sink your teeth into these beauties, it's like biting into a crispy shelled fluffy cloud where sweet cool cream floods your senses ... and then you wish, darn, should have bought a few more puffs! The taste is altogether delightful, light and fresh, not heavy, too rich nor too sweet. Check out pic below.
We also bought the Chocolate Fondant which is something like the Chocolate Dream in Cava, it's like a chocolate cake which oozes rich dark chocolate sauce once you bite into the centre. I still prefer the one in Cava as it's served warm.
But the cream puffs are absolutely a must-have! They fill the custard filling upon each order so it's super fresh.
Price: I can't remember, it should be around RM3 or so, but I think they also have a 'box' value buy. It's ok if you're not gonna eat it everyday. Right?
Apparently they started in Mid Valley for us, somehow I did not notice it there before.
What else I discovered about Beard Papa's ...
- Beard Papa's is a Japanese company founded in 1999. Their slogan is "Fresh'n natural cream puffs." Beard Papa's has over 250 stores in Japan and 300 worldwide.
- There is an American website: http://www.beardpapas.com/
- Closer to home is a Singaporean website: http://www.beardpapa.com.sg
- Apparently the international menu is really wide especially in US and UK; with eclairs, cheesecakes, tiramisu, mochi, etc. Some places even offer many flavors! But I still like the classic Vanilla, I really can't imagine cream puffs any other way! Here, I think they offer Vanilla and Chocolate flavors.
