Ham and cheese croissant – Bouchon Bakery

Ham and cheese croissant - Bouchon Bakery
$6.75
Bouchon Bakery, Yountville CA

Ok, this is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Bouchon Bakery presses the shit out of their croissant sandwiches so you end up with a flat, condensed buttery mess! Isn’t the joy of eating a croissant the ability to appreciate the airy layers and flaky exterior? Well, they’ve decided that eating a hard puck of food is preferable. Fail!

Ugh, I couldn’t stop filling my breakfast plate with SO much food every morning! I really didn’t have to eat so much and I wasn’t even that hungry, but I couldn’t pass up on tasting a little bit of everything. Hehe!

Sugar egg puffs – Shanghai Dumpling King

Sugar egg puffs - Shanghai Dumpling King
Wow, these egg puffs were awesome! They reminded me of a fried version of light, airy, eggy popovers. The interior was smooth and custardy, and SO delicious! I shook most of the sugar off because I’m not a huge sweet fan, but really these warm puffs didn’t even need the extra sugar to make them better. They’re perfect as is! 3 pieces $3.25

Paris Baguette, Ho Chi Minh City VIETNAM

I love the different shapes that all the pastries come in here! American blueberry pastries mostly come in a boring round shape. We don’t get a cool variety like the ones at Paris Baguette. It’s a shame. :(
