Empty those silver coins from the bottom of your bags because Emperor’s Cream Puffs sell at only 30 cents a pop or 4 for $1 in Chinatown (the side closest to Paddy’s Market).
That long line waiting at from a small vendor’s stall from 12pm-9pm every day of the week is for the small puffs given in small white paper bags.
Lining up didn’t take long because their clever clicking and clacking machine claps the eggy custard into the freshly made choux pastries.
They are steaming hot off the press so you’ll need to wait a good 10 seconds before taking a close up photo like me.
So are they creamy, tasty and yummy like how they do it in Asia?
Personally I have no idea how they taste but seeing that my family has been to China (and not me) it seems like they could be more creamier, tastier and yummier.
In my opinion, the custard is quite bland and lacks that little bit of icing sugar to be sprinkled on top.
Unfortunately Emperor’s Puffs didn’t meet my expectations..
Review Rating: =D =) =| =(
Product (Cream Puffs): =|
Would I buy cream puffs again? I don’t think so. I’m not a huge fan of custard either or anything creamy although thee custard in these don’t really taste like custard.
Would I pay more than 30 cents for a puff? Nah. They don’t taste the best and profiteroles are much more delicious.
Highlight: It’s so dam cheap!! If you’re hungry and looking for a quick snack then this is the place to go, especially if you’re a UTS student. Service is quite quick too.
Suggestion of Improvement: Sprinkle some icing sugar on top or make the custard creamier. They’re real soft so I wouldn’t mind that extra crunch on the outside either.
