Patisserie Chantilly's Black Sesame Cream Puffs

chantilly is to beard papa's as filet mignon is to a good restaurant burger. when i have that meat craving, i can definitely squash it with a good burger and not break the bank. but when i want to make the investment, i'll get the filet.

it's the same with the cream puff. i'll trek out to chantilly for their black sesame seed cream puff when i have the deeper longing for buttery cream goodness. the sheer cost of the one puff (around 3-4 bucks) might make the most frugal dessert seeker cringe, but you'll get your money's worth in terms of flavor and pure butterfat creaminess. eating the chantilly black sesame puff gave me warm food memories of eating hot, comforting and sweet black sesame soup in taiwan. you really need to like the flavor of smoky black sesame to desire it in an all-taste-bud-encompassing bite of the cream puff.

chantilly, you have a special place in my heart. you'll mess up my diet, but i won't be indulging in you too much so i think i'm okay.

beard papa, don't you worry your cute bearded little head. i'll still shell out two bucks for your efficiently produced, chocolate eclair goodness.

Great comparison. I'm glad there's room in your life for both - a good hamburger is still...good.
