I’m probably one of the few people that doesn’t care for the guava cheese pastry and goes for the cheese rolls instead.
I do think the potato balls and ham croquettes have changed for the worse. I posted about it on the “previous” board – the taste and texture of both are very different than they were a couple years ago. The ham croquettes are like a fine mince now, whereas before they were almost a pasty consistency, which I found much better. The potato balls are not as firm as they used to be – they fall part very easily and the beef filling is not as dry as before.
That being said, we still do go there, especially when we have people visiting to pick up cheese rolls, assorted savory pastries and the individual cakes and desserts like the opera cake, mini fruit tarts and the Parisian cake. My 10yo aspiring chef daughter swears their red velvet cupcake is the best around.
