Best Cream Puffs in the Planet! – Definitely the best cream puffs ever. The only downside is the wait on line and the price but overwise...they're the best.
My favorite use to be panade in the LES but this place beats them in favor and freshiness. Can't wait to go back!
Bite down on the crisp outer shell and cool, sweet, rich, buttery vanilla cream spurts into your mouth and as it travels down your throat, its hard not to close your eyes and say mmm mmm good! Try the chocolate eclair - it's an outrageous treat for the tastebuds as well and at that price, it's a steal!
Best dessert – The freshly baked puff pastry with rich cream inside is just perfect. The cream is just sweet enough. Along with the normal flavor, I highly recommend trying the green tea flavor as well as chocolate. Much more satisfying than your average donut.
Heaven – They are little clouds of heaven. I served them at a dinner party...and wow, did they go. Even the green tea ones. Deceivingly light and fluffy.
Cream puffs via Japan have UWSers lining up at all hours. – In Short
An assembly line of staffers in this slender, well-lit storefront keep the cream puffs rolling into eager customers' hands. The puffs are made with two layers: The first is choux pastry, which is the pastry that's used in eclairs and profiteroles; the second layer is pie pastry. The puffs are filled to order with a whipped cream-custard mixture. The puffs are best when eaten straightaway, but they can be refrigerated and eaten later.
Delicious – Despite the somewhat off-putting aroma about this place, the cream puffs are GREAT! Very, very tasty food and you're certainly not going to break the bank here. The regular cream puff was delicious, the eclair, while nice, isn't quite as fresh. I didn't try the flavor of the day, I'll save that for next time. Very nice service, too.
Good but not amazing – The smell of butter permeates this place, but fortunately the cream puffs aren't overly greasy. Their cream puffs are different from ones I've had before; I'm used to chewy choux and egg-custard filling. The crust here resembles a crispy biscuit (almost to the point of being too dry), and the filling is like vanilla creme anglaise pudding (very unique and great flabor). Even though I ate mine right away, I didn't get the contrast of hot pastry, cold filling. Maybe it's because I went late in the day.
one word...ORGASMIC!!! – Forget Krispy Kremes,
These little babies are awesome. Flaky crust...light creme not too sweet. Just plain old goody goodness!
Awesome – The real crispy cream! Those were the best cream puffs I ever had. Flaky crispy puffs and delicious cream.
Cream puffs.... Mmmm... – This brand new Japanese bakery serves The best cream puffs that you will be able to find. ($1.25 ea). After waiting in line, you will get to the counter where there is one person filling up the cream puff shells with cream... after which the cream puff is weighed to ensure that the correct quantity is used. Heavy ones are discarded. Another person packs the cream puffs in a box, and the third in line works the cash register... all working in perfect sync. After each customer pays, they all cheerfully thank you in Japanese in unison. Awesome!
