Of course, down at BIG, Publika, where puns are more rampant than rumours of fraud during the GE13, the new pop up dessert store (where T42 used to be, and next to B Wiched), named DESSERT STORM, these little babies have been brilliantly called KLonuts. Double entendre there no doubt, they hail from KL, and that is probably how the general chinese populace might pronounce Cronut.
Helmed by the lovely Mabel Cheah, who is actually trained in New York as a pastry chef, the pop up store offers KLONUTS in a variety of flavours, (ie, fillings), plated desserts, and you can actually feast on the interesting array of sandwiches from neighbouring B Wiched.
Caesar Salad within that pita roll. Rich and creamy, like a caesar salad.
Shia Le Beef...my favourite, slices of roast beef with a lot of caramelized onions. Ideally I would want this filling with the pita wrap.
After we had filled ourselves, rather unnecessarily, with copious amount of bread, that were now expanding like a sponge, it was finally dessert time.
I shudder whenever I see these decorative cake items. Cake decoration and I go together like Superman and Kryptonite. I wondered why we were presented with what is of absolutely no interest to me.
Sweet Spot, so elegant compared to my kindergarten effort. Some more got lemon curd overflowing from every orifice.
I finally popped my pop tart cherry.... I've always wondered what they were. They're basically biscuit with filling.
Anyway, like the Pop Tart, the stall is also a Pop Up Stall, and won't be there forever, so quickly head over to DESSERT STORM at Ben's Independent Grocer, (B.I.G.) Publika, for a real dessert treat. I've since brought my sister whose kids all enjoyed the KLONUT.
