Dear Food Diary:
“Copy” versions of Dominique Ansel’s sweet hybrid cronut (you might of heard about it? LOL) have been popping up from NY to Tokyo.
I was surprised that even Chikalicious, one of my favorite dessert spots in the city, have jumped on the cronut wagon. I’ve yet to try the real deal, but one dreamy dough’ssant bite later, I finally understood the craze.
If the cronut is anything like this dough’ssant, I’d bet my sweet tooth all this ain’t just a hype and we’ll be eating a lot more of it.
The to die for fragrance of butter, vanilla and sugar with the fun textures (best part of croissant + creme brûlée, genius!) made me a total believer, though it didn’t scream doughnut. I will definitely be back for more. I love how it wasn’t overly sweet, heavy or clogging.
The dough’ssant needs some more lovin’. Oh, and no lines!
