Whenever we visit Publika, a visit to Ben's Independent Grocer (B.I.G) is a must! It's always worth checking out what they have. With Halloween looming, there were pumpkins, scary costumes and treats.
After doing our grocery shopping, we decided to stop at Dessert Storm for KLonuts. A couple of months ago, cronuts were the in-thing and The BIG Group came up with their own version called the KLonut served in Dessert Storm, their pop-up dessert shop. Cronut is a croissant-doughnut hybrid, attributed to chef Dominique Ansel for Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City.
The KLonuts here are made to order by their pastry chef, Mabel. Other than KLonut, they are also serving afternoon tea for RM45 or a cream tea set for RM12, as well as some plated desserts, which changes weekly.
Three flavours were available and we went for the peanut butter and caramel as well as lemon curd and meringue, priced at RM7 each. The KLonuts have been deep fried and is served warm. Not much greasy aftertaste, though it tastes much richer than a regular doughnut. Out of the two flavours that we tried, I prefer the lemon curd and meringue as the lemon cuts some of the richness.
After enjoying the KLonuts, we had two more regular doughnuts from B.read, the bakery within Ben's Independent Grocer. Baby C chose the chocolate and custard doughnuts (RM3 each).
Anyway, here's wishing you all a spook-tacular Halloween from the Baby Sumo clan! Oh and if you find yourselves with lots of leftover pumpkin, check out this fabulous recipe for roasted pumpkin with fresh herbs.
Hurrah! Hubby's "spooky" photo on Instagram won him RM50 dining vouchers from The BIG Group... thank you :)
Baby C dressed up as a witch ... painted a spider and spider web on her face with green make-up around her eyes. And a custom-made spider ring by daddy.
