Laroolou - Chinatown

They good, they deserve their own thread.

Just tried their toffee scotch doodle thiccie and damn it was good. it’s like two desserts in one, a crispy and chewy snickerdoodle with bits of crunchy toffee and hints of scotch and gooey, fudge-y cookie dough in the middle. get this.

also tried the SOB (Sonofabiscoff) recently, I didn’t know I needed cookie butter in my life but apparently I need cookie butter in my life.

SOB - creamy cookie butter filling in a gingersnap crust topped with toasted brown sugar meringue


these pies were delicious, they were both just sweet enough and had enough going on that I kept going in for more. really liked the crumb crust too that had just the right consistency.

they now have a lil kiosk in the middle of the far east plaza in front of scoops.

Agreed! So happy we nabbed her for our noodle cooking event last March and got to try so many of her pies a week after she won best pie at KCRW.

Wait, is this the same baker who did the pies for the Chinese Laundry event? If so, now even more interested…

So glad these thiccies are getting notice! They’re absolute monsters in the best way.

yeah, we worked through the Cookies n Cream thiccie over the last two nights. I couldn’t eat more than a 1/4th in a sitting and I love sweets. These thiccies are absolute monsters and deserve a top spot on the Stoned, Drunk, & Hungry dessert power rankings.

That is literally the same exact desert I had thanks to @attran99. The chestnut pecan praline ice cream is the best ice cream I’ve had in a very long time. I could have taken down the whole pint. My daughter would have taken down the whole Laroolou thiccie if I didn’t stop her.

Whoa the ending of Mandolarian tonight.

Thanks @PorkyBelly. I actually saw that on the menu this morning. Doing some research on what else I can pick up on Sunday near Hayato. At the top of my list right now are Holy Basil, Superfine, Ototo, PRD and Amboy. The biggest problem is I’ll have both kids with me. Will have to bribe them with boba and iPad.

I pre-ordered a Chiefs mini-pie and a salted cookies and cream cookie for the Super Bowl. Very excited to try this place for the first time :slight_smile:

I have no team allegiance and know barely anything about football. I just liked the way the Chiefs pie sounded: “Vanilla custard layered with salty butterscotch sauce topped with dark chocolate ganache, toasted pecans and brown sugar whipped cream.”
