I love croissants, so much so I paid to join a baking class to learn how to make them at The Dough And Batter. Unfortunately that was when I realized that it is no small feat to make them from scratch ... but it gives you a new sense of appreciate for these flaky, crispy, buttery delights.
Recently, there has been a hype for Molten Salted Egg York Croissants at a cafe in SS2, so popular that people were getting angry if they couldn't get a croissant! Wow! I decided to join the queue one morning to see what the hype was all about, only succeeding the third time. It's doable if you live near the place, which I do on weekends. To my surprise, on my third try, a trio from Singapore had waken up at 3am in the morning to drive down to KL just for this. Now that's some serious dedication!
I realized that I have actually been to this cafe before a year back to check out their bread offerings, and it was relatively empty a year back. These days, it is packed to the brim ...
Finally, my croissants! Were they good? Well, lets put it this way - What doesn't go well with salted egg york? It's like dipping chocolate into a bowl of molten chocolate, or eating candy with caramel sauce ...
They weren't piping hot, but the salted egg york was creamy and molten. Egg york started oozing out from the other end of the croissant after my first bite. What a mess! I had spent 40 minutes in total just queueing, paying and waiting for my turn. Is it worth the money? Yes (RM 6.90). The calories? Yes. The time? Probably not ... :) But it's definitely worth trying once.
To be honest, the underdogs - strawberry cheese croissants were my favourite.
