It’s sometimes hard to restrain the emoticon whore in me at work. I just want to explode into a reply of emoticons especially when people put a smiley face in their emails. Maybe, just maybe through a post I can emoticon myself out to become ‘normal’ again. Here we go guys d^_^b
Stumbling upon this cute as a button bakery called Dough in Chinatown (they also have a stall inside the Adelaide Central Market), I couldn’t help but have a peek inside. First stop the strawberry tart :) Buttery biscuit-like pastry which reminded me of shortbread, filled inside with vanilla cream and decorated on top with tart strawberries. What actually won me over was the pastry – so much awesome ( ꒪Д꒪)ノ
Strawberry Tart ($4)
Oh dear Fraiser, one of my greatest weakness is crème brulee with it’s crack from the caramelized sugar, the chewy toffee-like texture ahhh （ ´∀｀）. Fraiser was quite a delicate cake with it’s light whipped cream and diced strawberries sandwiched between two soft sponge cakes.
The lemon tart’s soft buttery pastry encased a sour lemon curd – a good balance between sour and sweet ヽ( ￣д￣)ノ
Lemon Tart ($4) & Salted Caramel Éclair ($4)
Salted caramel for me comes with a 50/50 risk as it can go either two ways – it just tastes like caramel or it is salted caramel. The salted caramel éclair was filled with caramel crème with a slightly soggy pastry (a bit more firmer would have done the trick). The salted caramel was found in a layer of gooey caramel smeared on top with hints of sea salt. A tasty treat but I found the éclair to be leaning towards being more caramel despite it’s lovely salty kick.
Salted Caramel Eclair
A nice sneaky treat after a hardearned Saturday market day me thinks – that strawberry tart really stood out for me especially it’s pastry!
Now I feel emoticon-ed out, here have some tea: 且_(・_・ )
Atmosphere: 3/5 – cute, quaint shop :)
