Le Coeur de France Croughnuts
It’s hard not to hear about croughnuts when you see your friends and fellow bloggers posting about it. My first experience was from the Krispy Kroissant from Krispy Kreme and my next taste would be from Le Coeur de France. I was at San Antonio Plaza that day for my dentist check-up and while walking back, I passed by Le Coeur de France and a thought came into mind; how about I try their croughnuts?
So I went in, sat down and they gave me their menu. I was supposed to eat only the croughnuts but I got shy so I also ordered pasta.
Le Coeur De France Tuna and Tomato Pasta and House Blended Iced Tea – PHP 188
It was pretty simple (tuna in a tomato sauce poured over the pasta) yet I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was freshly cooked and the noodles were still elastic (not soggy). I used up the bread to clean up my plate after finishing every bit of solid on it.
Random Chitchat: I just realized that I’m really starting to like tomatoes (e.g. in soup, in pastas). Bit by bit, it is removing the trauma I had when I drank tomato juice from a tetra pack. I didn’t like it so much that I couldn’t even survive the first sip… and I bought 1 liter. Maybe it’s time to revisit that experience.
With that over, let’s now proceed to the croughnuts. At Le Coeur de France, they have three variants (where I got to taste 1).
Le Coeur de France Parmesan Cheese Croughnut
Le Coeur de France Mixed Berries with Cream Cheese Croughnut
Le Coeur de France Double Belgian Chocolate Croughnut
This is the one I tried (given my bias to chocolate) and I said to myself that it was a great choice! On top, you have a bitter-sweet chocolate topping (with chocolate chunks I want to pick and pop) and inside would be the cream. As I took my first bite, the cream and the chocolate topping mixed like they were made for each other. (soooo goood!) The bread was chewy, no complains from me there, because it served as the equalizer from the sweetness.
Le Coeur de France Croughnuts were also not fried, but baked (as I observed while were making a new batch). They sell them for PHP 89 each.
