I had been stalking Doux Amour for a while, ever since I spotted their very cute penguin choux pastry on Instagram. By chance, friends of mine came across their pop up store at the lower ground level, QVB and were nice enough to bring some home to share. Not all animals were available (7 out of 12) but I did have my eye on ‘Rosie’ (rose and lychee) and ‘PoPo’ (cookies and cream).
Photo sent from my friend which made me squeal very loudly.The menu.My friends couldn’t remember how much each puff was but I’ve seen on some reviews they are around $7.60. They bought home Rosie, PoPo and ‘Nutty Freckle’ (nutella).Cutting one up reveals a light fluffy custard that isn’t too OTT and you could easily eat more than one without feeling sugar sweats. I thought I would enjoy Rosie the most because of the similarity with Pierre Hermes’ Ispahan but surprisingly my favourite was PoPo. I thought the flavours of the nutella and rose/lychee weren’t strong enough.It could be said that these choux pastries are really gimmicky as they are very instagrammable and ridiculously cute but lucky they are also delicious. I can’t speak for all flavours though and I still want to get my hands on ‘Blackie’ (black sesame), ‘Quackie (pineapple), ‘Hopper’ (strawberry) and ‘Chai-ger’ (chai).

Good seeing you last night and meeting Timmy too 😃
I forgot you guys hadn’t met, I keep talking about you so I assumed you had!
Well now I have 😃
What did you think of the movie?
I liked it. I’ve seen their previous one and enjoyed it. The ending was a bit sudden and I reckon a different ending could have worked, but this sets up the possibility of another movie. I like the way the director jumps from food to the actors as well as capturing the looks from wait staff, cooks and customers.
It made me hungry but without seeing the other movies and understanding their humour, it felt like I was a third wheel to old friends who had a lot of in jokes.
I’m not sure where you can find the old movies, but the focus is on their impersonations.
Hahahha my focus was on the food 😂
and hopefully the lighting!!!
