There are some new and unique food trends in Jakarta. Two of them are everything with salted egg and croquant choux. Adding salted egg to various dishes is becoming more and more popular in Jakarta’s culinary world. From dipping to filling, adding the ingredient creates both delicious and visually attractive results. While for croquant choux, its might be one of the newest types of food that start to be on trend in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta.
Recently, we’ve tried the new creation from Hokkaido Baby, which famous for their baked cheese tart. They have launched the salted egg cheese tart and croquant choux which available in vanilla and chocolate flavor. We visited their new store at Plaza Senayan and luckily the items we want still available at that time.
Salted Egg Cheese Tart
As expected, the Hokkaido Baby cheese tart was good as always. The addition of salted egg sauce boosts its deliciousness. The texture was soft, custardy, and creamy. You can taste the flavor of cheese and salted egg at the same time. Such a perfect combination.
The choux baby was previously available only in vanilla flavor, but now they currently have the chocolate flavor. Basically, croquant choux is a type of long-shaped puff pastry but with a crispy coating on the top for extra crunch sensation.
The puff pastry has just the right texture, crunchy on the outside, yet soft on the inside, gotta love the extra crunch texture on the top with delightful buttery yet nutty flavor. While for the filling, the chocolate one simply cannot go wrong. But personally, the vanilla filling won our hearts. It’s smooth with just the right creaminess and sweet with a subtle salty taste from the pastry. So, the vanilla filling is better than the chocolate one.
Overall, Hokkaido Baby make a good addition to their product and food scene in Jakarta. We love both of the salted egg cheese tart and croquant choux. They are nicely executed in term of taste and quality. Love it!
