French pastries are always the best pastries in my eyes.
Not only are they handcrafted beautifully but they always taste so divine, it’s hard to stop at just one.
Coco 88 in Pemulwuy is vastly growing a strong following for its delicious choux.
I got there just before lunch on a Friday and half of the choux pastries had already gone so I opted for one of each of what was left (vanilla, salted caramel and chocolate), and I didn’t feel disappointed.
The salted caramel would have to be one of my favourites out of the three. It had just the right amount of salty sweetness.
The vanilla was good but could be stronger in its vanilla bean flavour as I thought it tasted more like fresh cream.
Winner winner chicken dinner! The chocolate was also a hit.
These guys also do savoury dishes so we tried the egg wrap which wasn’t too bad.
The ham and cheese croissant was pretty good and had the right amount of flake to it.
We also got a few bits and pieces to take home like the Ferrerro choux which was pretty yummy!
We also got a box of six assorted chocolates which were quite good.
So beautifully made, it was hard to not bite each one in half to see what was in the middle.
The Yuzu and strawberry was my favourite.
The earl grey tasted just like an earl grey tea with chocolate ganache.
The espresso martini was subtle and not too overpowering in flavour.
The verbena was another one of my favourites. It had a refreshing lemon taste which I loved.
The Yuzu is also another yummy and refreshing tasting one.
Last but not least was the cognac which was quite an interesting flavour. It was a special edition for father’s day which came back due to popular demand.
We will definitely be going back for more sweet treats!
Do you have a favorite choux place? I’d love to know.
