I got a Deal of the Day email for a $10 coupon for beard papa's... I didn't even know they open up one at Pacific Mall since I haven't been there since forever =D Beard papa's are a worldwide franchise cream puffs store that's originates from Osaka, Japan... tried it when I was in Hong Kong.... so I bought the coupon right away. The $10 Deal was valued at more than $26 and it include 2 original vanilla puffs, 2 green tea puffs, 2 feature flavour puffs, 2 cheesecake sticks and 2 fondue chocolate cake.
When we got there at around 5:30pm, there was quite a line up, I start to think that it may be good and worth the wait.... hummmm, waiting waiting & more waiting (for around 10 mins)
Love how everyone are dress in their cute "cook" uniform.....and they bake the puffs on the spot and the creams are squeeze in as per order....
But they only have 3 flavour available that day: the original vanilla, green tea and banana the feature flavour of the day.... in Hong-Kong they have more than 10 flavour readily available to choose from at all time.
I definitely like the original much better than the 2 other flavour but hopefully they will have the mango and the chocolate flavour the next time I visit.
The cheesecake stick was really nothing special and I would definitely not buy it at regular price... whereas the "Fondant au Chocolate" was not melting at all, as you can see from the picture the chocolate is not pouring out as it should be (you should have see their website picture and that's why I had higher hope)... I guess I should have warm in up before I eat it... nevertheless, it tasted nothing special, not really the best chocolate use...
btw, the Mochi ice cream and the mango ice shower are not available in Toronto's location, so I would recommend to just stick with cream puffs =P
Verdict: should try at least once but don't have too high expectation
