Beard Papa’s Cream Puffs – SUPERIOR!

A bit of Googling (yes, it’s now an official word) led me to Beard Papa’s Wikipedia page where I found out that my favorite cream puff store is actually a franchise from Japan (woot!). Admittedly, I wasn’t expecting that. Yes, Japan is known for many things- technology, anime, pixelated body parts, and virtual girlfriends among others; but if there’s one thing they’re not famous for, it’s desserts.
Japan, superior (again)!
I was lucky enough to have worked with a lovely Japanese national for a good two years (Herro Ms. Chiaki!) and within that period, I have learned many a thing about the Japanese food culture. One thing I learned is that although they make for fantastic cooks (we always got to try Japanese-style home-cooked dishes), the Japanese don’t really like strong flavors- sweets included. And this is the reason why I’m surprised that Beard  Papa’s sweet cream puffs are from Japan.

Beard Papa’s fantastic cream puff in all it’s glory (p55)

Beard Papa’s signature pastry is a yummy pastry puff generously filled with the famous Beard Papa’s cream. Upon ordering, the pastry puff is injected with the cream and then sprinkled with powdered sugar. It comes enveloped in a nature-friendly paper wrapper if bought individually and is packed in a happy yellow box if you order six pieces or more.

Sink your teeth into that yummy treat

Every bite of the melt-in-your-mouth pastry is just glorious. The bread has a certain chewiness to it, but it  goes well with the sweet and gooey cream inside. As a whole, the cream puff isn’t too sweet but neither is it bland, and the bread gives the entire pastry some texture. For some reason, the combination of chewy and gooey fits together just perfectly. Sinking your teeth into the puff just hits the right spot every damn time. Japan, you’ve pwnd us again; your Beard Papa’s Cream Puffs – SUPERIOR!

The branches that I frequent most often are the ones at Glorietta Food Choices and SM Mall of Asia but they have many outlets scattered around different malls all over Metro Manila.

    Unfortunately, I don't know where to find their list of branches online in Manila. If you can tell me where you are, I may be able to help you find the branches nearest you. 🙂
