Sora Croquant Chou: Tokyo Authentic Croquant Chou Landed In Jakarta

 Sora Croquant Chou

Have you ever been to Japan? If the answer is yes, means that you should know this remarkable chou pastry. With thick yet crispy puff pastry and gooey fillings, Sora Croquant Chou was just landed in Jakarta the last couple of days ago.

Specialized in cream pastry, this signature menu took its recipe from Tokyo. In Tokyo, they used a sprinkle of almond on top of chou pastry then stuffed with any fillings, and yes, it is entirely similar here. The whole baking process has also met the Japanese standard with the huge and gigantic oven at the corner. First time I saw this, I immediately fall in love with this small little pastry shop. How about you? :)

Nestled in Lippo Mal Puri exactly at the top level in front of XXI and Timezone, Sora Croquant Chou comes in petite size dining area. With thematic light bulb and floral decor, each guest might feel the warmness of this venue. Nevertheless, the warm hospitality from each staff would lead you to another level of dining satisfaction. I visit them on Sunday (PH), and it is very packed with people. There is an unstoppable crowd right there, and people keep on joining the line. Just make sure you come at the right time like mid afternoon or mid-evening to avoid the long line of individuals.

 Croquant Chou with Nutella

Start with the best-selling item called Croquant Chou with Nutella (IDR 20,000 / S$ 2,60 / piece). Featuring the nicely baked pastry shell with an almond crust; stuffed with Nutella cream. In fact, it tastes better than it looks! That pastry shell is unbelievably crispy and thick which I never found anywhere else in Jakarta so far. Also, that Nutella cream is naturally sweet and gooier. Just have it while it warm for the best experience. Therefore, one piece is never enough.

 Croquant Chou with Vanilla Ice Cream

Another iconic menu they got is Croquant Chou with Vanilla Ice Cream (IDR 20,000 / S$ 2,60 / piece). Featuring an ice cream sandwich using that crispy and buttery pastry shell. What I love the most from this item is that vanilla ice cream which is sweet and not quickly melts. At first, I did not expect for a perfect marriage between ice cream and cream pastry. But, in the end, I need to admit that I just love this. No wonder many customers always come to Sora Croquant Chou to order this menu. Perhaps, I will get my second piece soon! :)

Camembert Cheese Ice Cream

 Camembert Cheese Ice Cream

If you are an ice cream folks, this new item might entertain you much called Camembert Cheese Ice Cream with Cone (IDR 20,000 / S$ 2,60 / piece). For some people, camembert cheese might sound new, because it is rare to used in Jakarta. Camembert cheese is soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow's milk cheese which is originally from Normandy, in northern France. Then, when it comes in the form of ice cream? I need to admit; this item is must try! It's fluffy, soft, and a bit of sweet. Just take a quick snap for it since it comes in a gorgeous presentation.
