JAKARTA FOOD TREND: DOUGHNUTS AND ASSORTED CROISSANTS

Is ice creams are so last year? I am not sure about that, to me it's more like an everlasting trend, but even though the number of ice cream shops is growing pretty rapidly, we gotta admit that the vibe wasn’t as spectacular as it was one or two years ago, simply because it's too many out there.

Lately everytime I hear a new ice cream shop opening I would go “oh okay”, where I used to “fuck yeah I am going to be the first customer and sleepover outside the store the night before”. No seriously, I am being hyperbolic right now.

To make things clear, I LOVE ice cream, and forever will. It’s just my opinion about the current ice cream trend.

Anyway, talking about food trend, I have been eyeing on the fact that sweets will always ring, but this time in forms of martabak, cakeshakes, doughnuts, assorted croissants and more. Earlier today I tried BC & Cone’s latest collaboration with Gordon doughnuts featuring the best of both brands: ice cream and doughnuts.
Gordon has always been one of my favorites when it comes to assorted donuts, it’s just that I think they make beautiful donuts with generous topping and glazing, nice flavor, the right density and pretty much munch-able anytime! Basically you can opt for your favorite Gordon donuts and topped it with whatever ice cream flavor from BC & Cone you want. I had Gordon’s chocolate donut and topped with the most awesome Matcha Soy ice cream, the ice cream was just really nice with rich soy flavor dominating the matcha but in a good way.

ASSORTED STUFFED CROISSANT
...and today, Cake A Boo just launched its newest creation: assorted stuffed croissant! I must give it to either Cake A Boo, Shirokuma or Shirayuki for always setting the trend and give us something to fascinate at! Simply explained, it’s croissant with filling, only the croissant is topped with choux dough giving that extra buttery and crunch to the texture!
It’s available in four flavors: chocolate, salted egg yolk (I have never been a fan of salted egg yolk on a dessert), speculoos and hojicha (BOMB).
