Beard Papa at Chatswood

So ShibaInu & I finally made the trip to Chatswood Westfield for Beard Papa on Friday, accompanied by a mutual friend, J.

Beard Papa box

Beard Papa makes the best cream puffs in the world. They have over 200 stores in Japan, and have stores in the US, Singapore, Taiwan, China, Indonesia, Philippines, Korea and Hong Kong.

The puffs are fresh, soft inside, crisp outside, and the custard is absolute heaven. The custard comes in several flavours, depending on where you buy them from.

The pastry shells are first baked and cooled, and filled with custard only when you order them so they remain fresh. A sprinkle of powdered sugar/green tea/cocoa (for vanilla/green tea/chocolate respectively) and they are placed individual sleeves before being packed into boxes.

Box of 6 puffs

The Sydney version has 3 flavours, Vanilla, Chocolate and Green Tea. We didn’t get the chocolate ones because prior experience told us that the vanilla was still the best. However, J and I did try the green tea ones.

Vanilla

The puffs were as good as I remember them~~~ While ShibaInu and I have eaten them in Singapore, it was J’s first time and she said she really enjoyed it.

Tips when eating Beard Papa puffs:

Start from the hole where the custard was introduced into the puff. This way, the custard will only end up in your mouth and not anywhere else.

No matter how tempting, do not suck the custard when it is dripping out. Doing so will usually result in choking on the powdered sugar/green tea/cocoa. That is not a pleasant experience. Using your tongue is a more effective way.

Verdict: 9 out of 10 Damns
Because isms doesn’t give 10s.

1 puff: $2.50
6 puffs: $12.00
12 puffs: $20.00
