Caramel Cream Puff ($1.95)

Gawd, Beard Papa’s is so good. On a recent trip to San Francisco, The Astronomer and I stopped by the newest addition to the Westfield San Francisco Centre to check out Bloomingdales and the most wonderful food court in America: The Food Emporium. Although every vendor looked delectable, we only grabbed a quick bite at Beard Papa’s because we were due for dinner soon. The prices at this location were about 20 cents higher than in New York City, which I found pretty surprising. I normally order the Éclair Cream Puff, but decided to try the Caramel daily special.

The pastry shell was crisp as I bit into it and soft within. The custard tasted just like caramel and was not overly sweet. I love how the abundant amount of custard piped into the puff causes it to ooze. Truly, the perfect cream puff. When will Papa come to Philly and San Diego? Hopefully soon.

  1. I’ve seen these on a few other food blogs…I hope one comes to Philly soon, I can’t wait to try one and I’d rather not have to get on a train to get one!

  2. Mmm… We recently got two Beard Papas in LA (one at Hollywood + Highland, one over on the West side… Sawtelle, I think?) I’ve tried the vanilla (over and over and over) and the strawberry, which was not nearly as good. Tasted more like strawberry yogurt filling than any cream. There was a definite yogurt tang. I’ll keep my eye out for caramel day!
