There is simply an infinite number of ways that you can conjure up a slightly different dessert using all the same ingredients. Agree?
Well I certainly thought so when I saw this.
A Danish Durian Bar.
No, no not a bar in Denmark… although that’s what initially popped into my mind. Were they eating these Danish bars in Denmark?
As it turns out, NO. Danish Bar is a Japanese bakery concept started by the Mermaid bakery.
They had all sorts of sweet and savoury flavors wrapped in a sort of crepe type exterior which looked partly crunchy and partly chewy… one had a D24 filling. Interesting. It looks a little lewd, (but I guess the sausage one is the most lewd) and I’m not sure you want to be seen eating it while walking around.
I plan to go and try it, though if you get there before me, let me know if the D24 is worth it. A Mao Shan Wang might have greater appeal.
Find it at the corner near the escalators by the City Super Food Court in Times Square, right by Mermaid Bakery.
