Beard Papa’s

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Dessert|United Kingdom

After a scrumptious meal at the Four Seasons Chinese Restaurant, I suddenly craved for Beard Papa’s cream puffs and texted Ai Wei for the address and the telephone of the café. Thank you Ai Wei for the immediate reply across half the globe. The puffs were simply addictive, they got my best friend travelled to Pavilion for cream puffs the next day. With the information, we traveled quickly to Beard Papa’s since we need to catch our bus back to Cardiff.

Beard Papa is located in Oxford Street, within walking distance either from Oxford Circus or Tottenham Court Road Underground Station.

The café was quite small but bright, clean and pleasant.

Beard Papa is a Japanese bakery chain founded in 1999. There are now 300 stores in 15 countries, selling 150 million cream puffs in 2007. One good thing about their products is that no additives and preservatives were used.

Instead of purchasing one or two cream puffs, we bought a box of cream puffs and brought it back to Cardiff for supper. There are a few sets available, we bought set A which consists of 3 cream puffs, a cornet, a cookie crunch puff and an éclair cream puff. Set A was originally priced at £7.90, but an additional 10p was added to the bill since we ordered a flavour of the day cream puff.

Our box of cream puffs getting ready to go home with us!

Got a little hungry during the journey and ate a cream puff, so there’re 5 left in the photo which was taken at home. The original vanilla cream puff (bottom left) is simply my favourite, it tasted so heavenly delicious! The cream puff was so fresh and fluffy, complemented with the smooth but not too sweet vanilla cream filling, it was excellent! There are 3 types of flavours offered in UK’s Beard Papa’s, namely green tea, chocolate and strawberry. The flavour of the day when we went was chocolate. It was our first time trying it and it was very good, very nice and light. The cornet (middle of the photo) was quite good too! It was generously filled with delicious vanilla cream, so soft and smooth when eaten. The éclair cream puff (upper right corner) tasted quite unique with rich chocolate topping and vanilla filling, something worth giving a try! The cookie crunch puff (right) was good too. Six is just not enough to satisfy my cravings!

Other than those introduced above, Beard Papa’s in London also offer chocolate fondant, cheesecake and tiramisu which we would love to try in the near future! Service was extremely good and friendly. More information about Beard Papa’s can be found on their UK website here.

Beard Papa at Queensbay,Penang is no good business. Not as good as I've expected (compared with KL one).
