FAIRMONT / RAFFLES Makati is known for their amazing desserts, so imagine my excitement upon seeing a particular Facebook post about these lovely sweet tooth treats; they are now making Doussants, yes folks down with the bandwagon and this is their version of the cronut. This hybrid of a croissant and a doughnut has been making a big buzz these days, and with the locals unparalleled love for doughnuts, I think this craze is here to stay.
They’re trying to keep things fresh, assuring quality of their pastries, thus producing a small batch daily; only 200 pieces of these luscious hybrids. Love how the base was like a croissant thin layers of pastry with the edges giving a nice crunch to the bite and as you bite into it yields a nice soft and chewy consistency to boot. Layers of pleasure and indulgence meticulously prepared, it’s kind of amazing how I was able to peel each of the layers admiring the flavors ever so slowly. Varying flavors and texture and then you hit the pastry cream, BAM! Oh utter bliss.
