Taiyaki (fish cake) is undoubtedly one of the most dominating & trending food/dessert item at the moment, and the past few months we’ve seen such revolution such as Croissant Taiyaki, which is the crossover of the croissant pastry and Taiyaki’s shape, and it’s very common for Jakartans that when one is setting the trend, others follow and try their best to simply be the best, but again, when it comes to taste, it’s very subjective because the four that I am highlighting here have their own versions, so anyway, here are some of the most happening croissant taiyaki in Jakarta.

List is Alphabetically sorted.

Ebbey Taiyaki is a taiyaki dessert brand that you can find in Mal Kelapa Gading 2, they’re pretty popular for their taiyaki dessert and just recently they launched their version of croissant taiyaki. Their croissant taiyaki is coated with sugar, flaky with moist and soft middle, and available in mocha and Nutella filling. I personally found their croissant taiyaki to be decent enough.

Itadakimasu’s version of croissant taiyaki is actually more like mochi croissant taiyaki as their dough is very chewy with flaky coating and generous filling (of course I am rooting for their Nutella filling), overall for me it’s still pretty decent and worth going for despite how famous they are for their sleeping panda curry rice.

Pungopang’s version is literally “cooler” than the rest, well that because it’s currently the only outlet that serves croissant taiyaki dessert with ice cream filling. I’ve always loved Pungopang ice cream and I was fond of the fact that they created their croissant taiyaki to be completely dry, somehow works with the ice cream filling. You can choose their ice cream flavor depending on your liking: they have chocolate, red velvet, taro, matcha and horlicks.

I don’t want to be bias but I personally think Taiyaki Patiserrie serves the best croissant taiyaki at the moment. Their croissant dough is very buttery hence it reacts amazingly well with the heat and very fragrant. The coating reminds me of Danish pastry, and when you actually have a bite, you’re going to experience that layers of goodness, but it’s the filling that wins big time, I highly recommend their rum or red bean flavor. The consistency of the custard is not entirely thick and creamy, it’s this medium custard consistency with rich filling flavor and one is certainly not enough.
