After a recent dinner with Spicy Ninja and Cookie, they wanted something sweet to nibble on post-dinner (shabu shabu at Quickly - that’s almost 4 years old, the prices are now $14.95). We wandered over to Ferrara’s and ordered a trio of mini-pastries.
Napoleon was up first: Bavarian cream filled Pan’di Spagna covered with icing. It was alright; not my type of dessert.
Not very attractive to look at, but by far the one I liked the best: the Dacquoise – bittersweet chocolate pouch filled with praline & gianduia cream. The outside shell was not too sweet, and was filled with yumminess.
Definitely the prettiest, the Cheminee (chocolate chimney filled with chocolate & vanilla mousse & a berry) won on looks but wasn’t my cup of tea.
I think the trio was about $7.50 which wasn’t bad for a nice sampling of little pastries.
Yvo says: I’ve actually always avoided Ferrara’s for the touristy trap it seemed to be, but I’m glad Cookie suggested we go in and have a bite. It was a cute place and huge inside – tons of seating – and I would definitely go back to sample more of the many pastries they have in their glass cases.
