Strawberry Napoleon


Came across several Napoleons (i.e. Flor Patisserie, Patisserie Tony Wong, Zoe Patisserie and Patisserie Glace) but most of the time, the puff pastry is thick to withstand the pastry cream from softening the pastry; or that the filling catches the bulk of the attention.

As for this one from Something To Go, the puff pastry is easily the thinnest we have come across so far.

Priced at $28 nett for a 500gm, this is available off the shelf and I would say the pastry remains light and crisp until the cake is cut (i.e. puff pastry became soggy after several minutes upon cutting). Custard is of the right viscosity, not cloying nor overly sweet and the strawberries make it a light and refreshing treat. From a 5-star hotel, the price is reasonable and is recommended provided you have people to finish everything in a go.
