Part of the fun of experiencing Adelaide is eating crazy things I have never seen before. Last week, one of my Asian classmates introduced me to this little Asian pastry, he said it was similar to a pancake. Apparently in Chinatown there is a shop that makes these little bits of goodness, and they fill them with flavors like chocolate, coconut, custard, and a very Asian red bean filling.
Oh. My. God.
So freaking good. When you eat them fresh and hot, they are chewy with a little crisp-ness around the edges and the fillings are just little puddles of sugary goodness. I wasn’t such a fan of the red bean filling, but that?s because I still have not completely trained myself to eat them yet. But the custard was quite kick ass, so I went back and got some for my partner and I to enjoy. Still don’t know the name, though. That’s me, Leena Trivedi-Grenier, bringing you tasty bites from the around the world even if she doesn’t know what she is eating! ~LTG
