After having a peppery lunch at Pepper Lunch, Kiely and I went to the newly opened Beard Papa’s that was only a few doors down. Sorry, no photos of the interior because the owner said it wasn’t allowed. Why? The place looked nice, so why not show it off? He was kind of a dong about me taking photos of my food too… he was said, “I guess I can’t really do anything about that” when I asked if I could photograph my cream puff. At that point, I didn’t even want the cream puff. But Kiely had already ordered.
Kiely ordered some kind of pudding with a dirt-like mixture on top. There was also a sad, dehydrated-looking sliver of strawberry. And parsley. Who garnishes with parsley on a dessert?
I didn’t know what I wanted yet, but that didn’t stop the server from hovering over me like a hawk. Pen and paper ready at hand. I appreciated the attentiveness, but it put way too much pressure on me. Whatever – I just defaultly picked the Matcha Cream Puff. Apparently, it’s 220 calories as advertised… Is that supposed to be healthy? Yeah, I wouldn’t want to know how many empty calories are in my dessert.
I cracked into the chilled cream puff and was immediately disappointed. There was a small glop on matcha filling inside.
This was in stark contrast to the one that Eating With Kirby got! I guess my creampuff was much less than 220 calories.
On the other hand, I was okay with having less filling because it wasn’t that great anyway. It lacked matcha flavour, which didn’t help the fact that it was less sweet. So not worth the calories.
