- Pimped Out Baklava Soft Serve
- White Chocolate & Matcha Tart
We thoroughly enjoyed the Pimped Out Baklava Soft Serve. Beautifully presented, the upside-down cone spills onto a generous plate of ice cream. Incredibly smooth and creamy, the soft serve exhibited a slight yet ever-present coconut flavour throughout. Without being overly sweet, the mild soft serve served as the perfect base to the toppings, though gave way to a bold soy aftertaste. The soft serve was further decorated with an abundance of sauces, nuts and layers of baklava. Exceptionally crunchy, the bits of pistachio, along with crispy flakes of baklava, provided the perfect crunch elements to the dessert.
The White Chocolate & Matcha Tart tasted as great as it looked. The tart was filled with an inner of exceptionally creamy and soft mixture of matcha and white chocolate. While the matcha flavour was pleasant, we felt that it could’ve been slightly bolder and more bitter. However, this was well balanced by the sweetness of the white chocolate.
We felt that the pastry of the tart was the only letdown. Incredibly hard and brittle, we felt that it could’ve been made much softer and more buttery, despite the lack of butter used within.
It’s clear that Girls and Boys dishes out innovative and creative desserts that not only deliver on looks, but also on flavour as well. With all their products made in-house, bar the croissants, their healthy yet delectable range of desserts and health foods is caters to all sorts of dietary requirements without disappointing the eat-everything crowd.
Would Penguin Eat Again?
Most definitely. I excitedly anticipate my next visit to try more weird and wonderful flavours of soft serve!
Penguineats would like to thank Girls and Boys for inviting us.
